Teachers of India

Teachers of India (TOI) is an educational program for teachers across India initiated with a vision: "In order to create a better nation, a good education is necessary and in order to get best and superior quality of education, teachers should be well trained and equipped with best resources". Initiated and managed by Azim Premji Foundation, a not-for-profit organization with a vision to contribute to systemic changes in Indian education that facilitate a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. The Foundation has engaged with over 2.5 million children in 20,000 schools across 13 States and The National Knowledge Commission which is a high-level advisory body to the Prime Minister of India, with the objective of transforming India into a knowledge society.

The team at Azri consulted with the editorial team at Azim Premji foundation, to arrive at the feature set and the technology which would enable the vision of TOI became a success in the digital realm. 

The objective of Azri was to keep the cost of development and maintenance low while providing a feature-rich web platform. This was achieved by choosing a bouquet of ready-made open source solutions and integrating them into a solution to meet the expectations of the client. Azri leveraged open source modules like Apache Solr, Workflow, Audio, Captcha, Locale etc that could play well with each other and get most of the functionality off the shelf and Drupal's customized modules and its responsive open source community helped to develop the web portal.
