Background & Values
“make education fun & relevant”
While helping his daughter, Sanjay observed that there are a lot of good quality and free videos on the internet. Videos help in Visualization and better understanding. He decided to curate and catalog these videos in an open library so that it would be significantly more useful for a large population of students. Thus tickLinks was borne.
In 2017, Sanjay started to evangelize tickLinks into schools. Schools could provide benefit of world class videos to large number of students through network effect. Also these would create conversations and discussions in the class – which would help children to learn articulation skills and build perspective and confidence by listening to other questions and observations.
However, despite availability of computers in schools and good quality content – the adoption is a challenge because of multi-layered issues like last mile IT issues, learning new practices and habits, energy required for change etc.. Open Links Foundation was founded in 2017 to address these issues.
