Solution

'We Study' is an online classroom platform. It tries to recreate the physical and leverage the power of digital learning platforms. It introduces a virtual companion named doggie, which is owned by a set of children. Good behaviours, attention etc in class fetch 'goodies' for the doggie. These rewards can be fed the next day ensuring attendance. 

Virtual Character

Meet Doggie

Doggie would be a character capable of expressing emotions to the child. These would be based on behaviour, mood, time of the day and conduct in class.
