It all started in 2012 when the idea of illumnus was conceived by our founder Mr. Akash Singhal, then, a student at IIT Bombay. He saw that while the world is getting connected through the Technology, Education and Schools are lagging behind. In his classes, he was first introduced to a system of Moodle and concepts like Flipped Classroom. He soon began to realize the importance of a connected school inspired by the ideas being implemented at India's most premier institution, IIT Bombay. What followed was years of brainstorming and research on how a new-age digital platform would look like and how technology could help improve learning outcomes and help schools and colleges stand out.
