Board better. Work is currently underway to add more State Boards and languages to the coverage. Notebook has also hosted some of the most marquee events in Indian school education, namely – ‘Zero hours international inter-school debate’ in 2020 and ‘Ignite Inter-school Innovation Challenge’ in collaboration with IIM Calcutta Innovation Park in 2021, which brought together thousands of students from across 8 countries.
Notebook has been chosen as the preferred Edtech partner by some major brands like BSNL, Paytm, Build-a-class, Aflatoun International (Netherlands HQ-ed NGO), etc. More importantly, Notebook is singularly a multilingual, state-of-the-art, streaming platform with a bitrate adaptive playout that ensures zero-buffer streaming even for low bandwidth connectivity outside urban centres.
Notebook continues to grow with a vision to a future that includes coverage of more languages and State Boards, an AI-driven assessment portal, phygital access with on-ground Cash point network in rural areas, zero% Interest financing options to make things easier and economical for users and ‘Click-to-Play’ – an Augmented Reality interface that plays content on holding the phone over a textbook page.
The founder & CEO Achin Bhattacharyya said: “It is definitely heartening to see the number of users grow beyond milestones, but what makes it even more special is that this is almost completely organic growth. Teachers have recommended us to their students, people have recommended us to their colleagues, and usage has grown. Also, I consider it a laurel that this usage is spread across the spectrum when it comes to demographics – students from marquee schools find us as useful and effective as students from Tier-II and Tier-III towns. Being appreciated and recommended by eminent educationists from the most reputed schools in all four metro cities inspire us to greater heights.”
