Ottway Ducard stashed this in education
BrainNook is a massively multiplayer online educational game for US schools (read our earlier coverage) and the Chennai based company has raised seed funding from a Silicon Valley incubator called Imagine K12 which is focused on education startups.
BrainNook contains over a hundred educational games based on important concepts in the critical foundational subjects of Math and English Grammar. The startup started off with a focus on India, but is now solely focused on US market.
“Although we think there is a lot of potential in the Indian education market, at this point we are seeing a lot of interest in BrainNook from US schools and teachers. We sell in the US market through our own website as well as partnerships with education-focused social networking platforms like Edmodo. We were one of the launch partners for the Edmodo App Store earlier this year. We will also have announcements of additional partnerships coming up.” mentions Abhijeet Vijayakar, founder of the company.
