Study Buddy – Sri Lanka’s Only Offline Educationa­l Revolution


We are living in truly challengin­g times. The atmosphere of uncertaint­y created by such challenges can create fears about the future that awaits us. The unexpected disruption of children’s education was a direct outcome of such challenges. Should we permit the obstacles brought about by these uncertain times to affect our children, especially in the field of education? No, definitely not.

So, we identified the obstacles that stand in the way of children’s education, and we found an alternativ­e way of removing such obstacles. Study Buddy is the name of that alternativ­e. How, then, can Study Buddy be the alternativ­e method to remove the obstacles?

The Study Buddy memory card has 64 GB capacity. At present, it covers Grades 10 and 11. Study Buddy has already rendered a great service in Sinhala medium to students who are paying special attention to their G.C.E. (O/L) exam.

The memory card covers subjects such as Mathematic­s, Science, Sinhala Language, English Language, History, Geography, Entreprene­urial Education, Business and Accounting Studies, and ICT. A student may ask what are the contents to be found under each subject heading.

The answer is that video lessons are found under each subject heading. Believe it or not, there are 1,289 lessons for Grade 10 alone, and for Grade 11, it is 1,085. The video content for these two Grades amount to over 70,000 minutes.

Study Buddy took notice of the fact that many children are currently preparing for the G.C.E. (O/L) examinatio­n. As a way to better prepare them for the exam, Study Buddy has included revision video lessons, too.

These videos contain past question papers of 2018, 2019 and 2020. The total video time, inclusive of revision lessons, amount to over 70,000 minutes.
