There are many E- learning apps available in the market, but none can solve the problem that is faced by the teacher when she fails to attend to the queries of all the students in her class, in the given time period. This is the reason why the Researcher came up with the idea of carrying out research on a hypothetical situation where an application would act as a supporting tool to the stakeholders of the school administration and would help the students to get their queries cleared from the teacher, even when they are at their homes. This shall encourage the “hybrid” model of education. To carry out this research, Expert Purposive Sampling has been employed by the researcher on 10 CBSE schools out of 17 of them in the Ranchi, Region. A questionnaire of 17 questions has been administered to the Principals/ Vice-Principals (according to their availability) of these schools. The questionnaire aimed to find basic information about the school such as number of students and infrastructure provide to the students along with schools’ perspective towards collaborative learning, continuous learning, continuous evaluation, remedial measures and e- learning. The classes in focus were Std. 9th-12th which comprises of more than 8000 students studying across these schools. Courses offered by school in higher secondary are Science and Commerce and few offer Arts. Later the Researcher has employed SPSS tests to come to a conclusion. The outcome of this research came to be a positive one. Schools show keen interest in adopting Hybrid learning and most of the schools have also agreed to take up the new E- learning application. The price and the characteristics of the application play an important role in it’s acceptance by the school’s administration. Hence the null hypotheses in this case have been rejected.
