Quick Facts

Gooru is an educational technology non-profit dedicated to honoring the human right to education. We’ve developed a learning navigator that provides K-12 teachers and students with real-time assessment data and a catalog of free and open content designed to personalize the learning experience and support students in reaching their goals.

Dr. Prasad Ram ("Pram") started Gooru as a "20 percent effort project" while at Google. After a year-long pilot in India that included 1,000 students across 25 classrooms, Pram subsequently left Google to pursue Gooru.

Gooru was found in 2011. Since then Gooru has attracted over $25 million in grants from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Hewlett Foundation, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Office of Naval Research, National Science Foundation, National University, Google, Cisco and Pearson.
