Videos.

OpenLinks Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to drive fun and relevance in classrooms using open source videos. Students learn to make & see good educational videos. We aim to reduce student stress and weave 21st century skills into education.


Students lead as change agents. We seize the raw excitement & curiosity of students to adopt technology and induce fun. It is a unique bottoms-up approach for initiating transformation in the education system.


Our objective is to provide low-income communities with access to high-quality education. We are building a community of facilitators (Saarthi fellows), students (Atharvas) and curators to scale our mission.

Why Videos?
WE retain

80% of what we SEE,
20% of what we read
and only 10% of what
we hear

At the center of our model is the
student

It is about seizing raw excitement & curiosity of students to explore and learn new things. Making videos caters to many creative passions and freedom of expression. Video becomes the tool for learning and teaching.

The volunteers – Saarthi - learn and teach - how to make short educational videos. They inspire students to be great communicators. Saarthi undergo a transformational journey in learning and leadership supported by our structured program.
