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 millions 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. Gooru is also supported by the Sobrato Family Foundation, whose Sobrato Center for Nonprofits provides office space for Gooru’s U.S. based operations.
