Background

As part of our language learning initiative, we have blended our creative skills, deep technology skills and story based pedagogy to come up with an innovative interactive book platform(IBP) for comic/children book publishers, schools and animated video production companies.

Our IBP platform has two parts and we license the technology for one or both the parts:

Our IBP book authoring and publishing platform will help children book publishers and animated video production companies to better engage with their users/viewers by releasing a book authoring app using which anyone can create interactive books using their digital assets (e.g. characters). Our platform will help users to create, publish and read these interactive books on various mobile platforms (Android, Apple iOS and Windows8), thereby increasing the brand loyalty. For end users, this authoring app will be helpful to improve their creativity and linguistic skills.

Our IBP book reading platform will help comic/children book publishers and schools to transform their existing paper or digital books into interesting interactive books which cater to respective age-groups. Our interactive book will be an application which will provide an enhanced reading experience of a book by creatively blending audio and visual effects along with engaging user interaction. Our platform will help to deliver these interactive books on various mobile platforms (Android, Apple iOS and Windows8) in a secured and cost-effective way with flexible payment options for the user, thereby increasing the reach of books to millions of new users and adding significant value to the existing readers too. For children, these interactive books will be helpful to learn with more interest, increase their curiosity and creativity level along with their linguistic skills.
