  • Mumbai Development Center
    • The R&D unit was set up with an objective to bring ICT to Indian schools, which has been designed and developed for use in a classroom.
    • IWB and such technology products have made possible to move from chalk and talk classroom environment to more engaging environments, where technology can be combined with pedagogical and instructional sciences to deliver quality teaching.
    • The R&D team has worked in the past in creating high quality 3D content for school education.
    • The team has successfully created digital content and technology products such as multimedia digital content for school curriculum, content player, content management system and unique tool for teaching mathematics content.
    • In the past three years, the R&D unit has been able to cover most of curriculum for CBSE. However curriculum for state boards in India and higher grades in CBSE is still to be covered. This has been taken as immediate projects which the team is working on. This will help deploy the digital products, not only to CBSE schools but to state boards as well.
