Here is the video highlighting InOpen’s vision ​:​

InOpen is a IIT Bombay based Educational startup. The Company was founded in Oct 2009 by Rupesh and Prof. Sridhar. InOpen began with a belief that there is an urgent need to simplify Computer Science School Curriculum and present it in a way that is simple, in sync with today’s life skills requirement and still be a part of the core curriculum. InOpen’s focus is on developing high quality academic content through intense research.
InOpen feels that in today’s scenario, there is an over proliferation of education related material. There is a lot of sensible content present but there is an overdose of information in many forms, mostly auxiliary. As a result, both the children and the teachers are overwhelmed and confused.
InOpen believes that in the information age, it is important to equip the students with the right combination of cognitive (thinking) and behavioral (life skills or 21st century skills) skills along with the right attitude (self learning abilities). It believes that there is a need to present content in a way that is simple, yet very engaging.
InOpen is serving the K-12 market with its flagship product ‘Computer Masti’ (CM) or ‘Fun with Computers’
InOpen always believed that one can actually impart life skills by teaching Computer Science. Computer Science is a discipline that lies at the intersection of computing, mathematics and applications in science, engineering and the social sciences. Computer Science is inherently interdisciplinary and cuts across many different fields.
InOpen spent a considerable amount of time researching around its idea. It formally started implementing it in 2009.
Currently it is directly impacting 600,000 students with its solutions, empowering 350 schools and more than 5000 teachers. The product is translated in 13 languages with entire services in 4. It has begun with implementations in foreign geographies that include Japan, Middle East and United States.
The vision is simple, InOpen believes that the way Computer Science has been taught around the world is fundamentally flawed and it wants to contribute in changing it. It is imparting life skills … much needed life skills by teaching Computer Science.
The intention is pretty simple, InOpen wants to simplify and strengthen knowledge.

Computer Masti (CM) camp is organized this summer in the month of May 2014 between 8th May to 15th May. It is an objective-oriented camp featuring learning experiences that are tailored around a gamut of computer applications. With every single day, campers are incrementally equipped with tools that will ultimately contribute towards a final personal project. The CM camp journey necessarily involves a focus on placing learning within a context and real needs. As a result, our campers have more fun when they are able to appreciate the relevance of applications in their daily lives! In addition to engaging in an integrated learning format, campers also benefit from a unique experience of simultaneously developing cognitive, behavioral and social faculties. The CM camp places equal importance in introducing campers to safe, healthy and ethical practices when engaging with the digital world!

InOpen is changing the way Computer Science has been taught in the world and Japan for us has a significant importance. Japan has got a huge market for Computer Science education as currently they do not have computers as a subject in schools.

An education giant Benesse headquartered in Japan will now be providing Computer Education to Japanese kids in collaboration with InOpen Technologies.

For the same, Team InOpen is now visiting Tokyo's most advanced schools and we are happy to announce that the schools have agreed to do a pilot with Computer Masti.

InOpen also got featured in Japan's biggest Super Prime Business Show ( WBS- Tokyo TV). They spoke about how Indians can change the world. http://goo.gl/RMdM69
