Social Features for Engagement
Conventional education ‘pushes’ students to study by forcing them to sit inside classroom, stay quiet, and a one-size-fits-all approach. Noon Academy utilizes a different approach, ‘pulling’ students towards education by providing them with highly engaging live classes that have a healthy culture of Q&A and student participation. And a variety of classes on personal effectiveness, career counselling and life skills.
As of today, Noon Academy is operational in eight countries with over 8Million students actively using this platform. You can download the app or signup from any internet device on the website to attend their daily live classes for free.
