Brief about the company - illumnus:

With the vision of transforming education, illumnus is an innovation-driven Education Technology startup by 2nd-time Technology entrepreneurs/educators and alumni from IIT Bombay & BITS Pilani.

Brief about the product - OneLXP:

The core product is a B2B SaaS-based collaborative Learning Experience Platform for Universities/Schools. We are changing the way how education is experienced in schools through modern technology, ultimately improving learning outcomes


  • Chat-based digital platform for a truly collaborative learning experience

  • 12K+ users and 50+ clients onboarded in the first 3 months Clients in India, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom
  • ARR of $20K and a promising pipeline of $200K

illumnus® rebrands to OneLXP






In our opinion, the startup is about working for a vision, fighting constraints, optimizing resources, reducing costs, and ultimately work towards generating higher revenues and greater adoption.

Previously, illumnus followed enterprise sales strategy, for which the Sales Cycle was Resource-intensive and time-consuming.

Now, we are launching a new product, OneLXP. In this, the end-user/admin of the school can setup their school in less than 2 minutes with the easy self-onboarding flow. Later, as the stakeholders of the school get used to the platform with its freemium model, the possibilities for Cross-Selling and Up-Selling open up.

So, what does this mean to the company?

  • More clients and end-users
  • Varieties of clients from several geographies
  • Smaller conversion cycle
  • Need for a smaller business/Sales team having to be physically present
  • Ultimately leading to much lesser costs and exponentially higher Revenues.

And, what are we targeting?

We are starting with the early adoption of the new product by targeting/onboarding Indian CBSE Schools. We have 21,000+ schools in this category. By July 2022, we plan to onboard 500+ schools with this strategy.

Early Access Campaign

We are also launching an "Early Access Campaign", through which the first 20 schools will get the Pro version (For an unlimited number of students) of the product for a mere $150 for a whole year. Here are the details of the same: (Valid for only Indian CBSE Schools)

We are planning to conduct a Clubhouse session soon. Meanwhile, If you have any suggestions, you can write back to me directly at

Automated Smart Attendance feature launched





If there were an oft-overlooked factor in online school management that reflects poorly on the school’s brand and outlook, is the poor attendance management system.

However, not all data is useful. Attendance data can only be effective when collated to reflect students’ learning experience, teachers’ effectiveness, and consequentially, students’ performance. As a missed school day is a lost learning opportunity for the child and as a primary element of the school’s administrative processes, OneLXP has eliminated the hassle of manual attendance record maintenance by automating the entire process.

Automated Attendance

Which school would not want to optimize their students’ and teachers’ time spent in class? The question, however, is that how does an automated attendance system benefit the stakeholders?


Key Features:

We walk you through the features OneLXP, an end-to-end Learning Management Software, offers in managing attendance effectively:

  • A report is sent to the administration and parents, as soon as the attendance is recorded.
  • Automatic attendance during online sessions
  • Teachers can check student attendance from subject notebooks and record manually if required.
  • User-friendly interface with color-coded attendance status and legible typeface
  • Unlimited attendance record
  • Secure attendance system

Key Benefits:

  • Increases time dedicated to learning by alleviating the time lost in recording attendance
  • Enhances student motivation and performance as a quicker and formal system ensures students attend classes regularly
  • Increases parent-student involvement as parents can check, through the parents portal, attendance for each subject or day.
  • Parents can coordinate with teachers to alleviate unnecessary absences.
  • Enhances parental trust towards the educational institution and improves school brand image
  • Zero error as our system eradicates the traditional paper attendance with illegible print-size

Live Classes launched





Conduct online classes more efficiently

Despite the transition from nice-to-have to must-have, live online classes are still a management nightmare for institutions globally. But not anymore!

OneLXP has made organizing and managing online classes uncomplicated. It provides integrated live online classes through Zoom or Google Meet - two go-to choices for live online classes in institutions worldwide. How does it benefit the school over a native online class feature?


Key Features

  • Integration with Zoom and Google Meet
  • Works on all platforms - Web, Mobile (Android and iOS)
  • Multi-user whiteboard for a more dynamic classroom environment
  • Straightforward screen-sharing to supplement the lecture
  • Automatic attendance system
  • Video Recording and Sharing
  • Frictionless and secure password-protected classrooms
  • Schedule a class with pre-reading materials or relevant attachments

Key Benefits

The benefits of live online classes are not restricted to class timings or the application’s undeniable intuitiveness. Rather it can be extended to extra one-to-one sessions when a student cannot comprehend a concept or other times, promoting class interaction.


Become an Effective Online Teacher

While OneLXP has cemented the concept of stellar student-teacher classroom experience technologically, we leave the teachers room to focus on expanding themselves, complimenting the teaching experience. Teachers can optimize their professionalism by:

  • Setting up a dedicated classroom background
  • Communicate clear expectations
  • Develop engaging content
  • Nurture online interactions and discussions towards productivity and effectiveness
  • Seek continual feedback
  • Build relationships and trust
