#EdTech | From #BYJU’S to #Unacademy – competition in India’s fast-rising online education sector - by @SanchDash

@unacademy @BYJUS @vedantu_learn #Eruditus… Image
The opportunity in Indian #EdTech is huge and the top edtech startups are all vying for the same pie. In 2020 alone, India’s edtech startups have raised over $1.5 billion which is just as much as the startups had raised in the past five years put together.

According to a Redseer report, India’s #EdTech startups had raised $1.6 billion between 2014-2019. Here's a look at the valuations of India's fast-rising #onlinelearning sector.

I am sure others are having similar experiences - a little learning for me - happened to be in the room while my 6 year old was doing his weekly 1.1 with his manager, uh teacher.
After some catching up she wanted to make sure they were aligned on the WIG and asked him to put his WIG sheet in front of the camera. WIG is Wildly Important Goal.
The fact that they have goals and review them regularly is impressive but what really got me is the teacher asking his new AR (advanced reading) goal and him saying - I want to get as many AR points as possible by doing n tests per day.

Why Options is riskier than Futures?

Let us take an eg of Nifty futures at 11000 and an equivalent OTM 11300 call with a delta of 0.33 and OTM put 10700 assuming a delta of -0.33.

It might appear that selling futures at 11000 (delta -1) technically equals....
selling 3 OTM 11300 calls (delta -0.33 X 3 = -0.99), at for eg 150.

Now let us assume futures moved up by 100. The percentage loss is 0.91%.
The price of the OTM calls is likely to go by 0.33 X 100, ie 33, meaning it will be at 188. The percentage loss is 25.3%.
2) When you are selling 1 lot fut (delta -1) you require approx Rs 1.4 lacs per lot margin. For selling one lot of OTM call (delta -0.33), approx you require Rs 1.2 lacs per lot. So for 3 OTM call sell (delta -1), u require Rs 3.6 lacs, way higher than a similar delta futures..

How to arrive at the equity market exposure (equity trading / investments)?
1) Expected Return :
Exp return = Risk Free return + Beta (Equity risk Premium)
Risk free return = 6% (10 year GSec yield)
Beta = Measure of the risk of you exposure vis a vis the broader mkt
Since your exposure is in equity, beta can be kept as 1 if your strategy limits only to large caps; however if your strategy includes also mid / small caps / fno stocks, the actual beta will increase.....
Statistically, beta = covariance (broader index daily return, average of large/mid/smallcap/fno daily return) / Variance or broader market return. (Can be easily computed in excel if you have the underlying data).
I am assuming a beta of 2 on an average for this tweet....

Can one person please answer this simple question?

What has changed in the science since March when Prof Luke O’Neil (and Dr Anthony Fauci) both said face masks can help aid the spread of the virus #COVID?

“Science” being the key word @laoneill111

#DivideAndRule #FaceMasks
4 Mar Face masks do nothing. Don’t wear them

17 Apr Face masks do more harm than good

11 May Wearing face masks is an added precaution

4 July Face masks “do the right thing?”

10 Aug Face masks mandatory

NB The science on masks has NOT changed one iota
As we prepare to Muzzle 4 and 5 year olds before the start of their first day in “big school” please Stop, Think

This arrived today. The book is an attempt to present a historically-embedded account of western childhood and how the co-constitutive logics of capital and motherhood have shaped its modern understanding. @VSLIIMA

#childhood #education #motherhood Image
"Situated at the confluence of children's nature and childhood's nurture, mothers are those who most often held personally responsible for navigating the dense undergrowth of competing and confusing narratives and expectations of childhood." #childhood
"Three elements- childhood's pliability, maternal accountability for children and children's subjecthood- entangle and tussle with one another in a variety of ways to produce a 'moral architecture' of childhood."

Long Thread - #Booksummary

My weekend learning from book 📗 You Can Still Make It In the Market written by Nicolas #Darvas

Trying to share my learning.. inspired by @MarketScientist @AmitabhJha3 @AnyBodyCanFly @RichifyMeClub @Wealth_Theory

Learn and become #AatmaNirbhar 🙏
👉 In this book Darvas documented his experiences from 1973-1975, he applied #Darvas box method when the stock market was recovering from its crash 📈of around 50% in 1973

👉#Darvas first developed and applied his methods very successfully in bull market where index tripled from 1950 to 1960.
👉Many doubted that his system works in a bull run only as he used to pick stocks at 52 week high.

#LearningReimagined 🌍

“Do away with curriculum. Do away with segregation by age. And do away with the idea that there should be uniformity of all schools and of what people learn.” 👈🏼

The education conveyor belt of the last century that went school to university to work and a job for life just doesn’t work in an era of rapid transformation.

#highered #highereducation
Over the past few weeks, schools all over the world have abandoned exams and testing that used to be required — and with them, the pretense that they ever really meant anything in the first place.

1/6 #BuildANewAnthropocene

Marine #citizenscience is a promising means of enhancing engagement in #marineconservation

We conducted a global survey of projects to
- Document the extent of #marinecitsci globally
- Outline its (potential) contribution to #marineconservation
2/6 #BuildANewAnthropocene

Figure = Global map of #marinecitsci projects

We identified 74 projects from around the world

These varied in size - small (5) to large (>7,000 active participants)

& scope - beach-cleans, invasive species tracking, marine mammal surveys, etc.
3/6 #BuildANewAnthropocene

Projects are mostly #contributorycitizenscience

> participants are primarily involved in data collection (i.e. less in data analysis)

> easier to conduct, engage large numbers at lower costs

Episode 2 of #WhatIf (Podcast -…)

What If we needed to abandon Learning & Development as we know it today?

I am suggesting we rename Learning & Development as Try, Refine, Learn. But the forces are stacked against it.
Who will object?
The global corporate learning market is estimated to be $ 18.5 billion in a couple of years. How good is it? Well, given the size of the market it is pretty good for the product and service providers. But for the learner it is the exact opposite.
Whereas the objective of learning is to ‘create new knowledge’ almost all corporate learning providers are designed to package ‘existing or old knowledge’ and share it with learners. I would rather say ‘Forced Learners’. Content packaged as ‘knowledge’ and delivered to employees.
