Noon provides a radically different collaborative learning environment—with real-time engagement powered by Agora

Noon founders realized that the problem in remote education is not a lack of content, but rather a lack of motivation—and boredom. The company set out to address this by building an education platform that is social, engaging, and fun. The platform includes live classrooms, breakout rooms, live study groups and interactive quizzes.


The Power of Real Time Engagement

Noon’s use of real-time voice and messaging facilitates a more natural online classroom environment where the teacher and students are able to interact much as they would in the real world.


To accomplish the goal of improving online learning through social interaction, Noon turned to real-time engagement (RTE) technology. Using live interactive voice and messaging, Noon has built an education platform where students are able to learn in a truly collaborative virtual environment. This collaborative engagement empowers a challenging, collaborative and fun environment where students learn together.


“We recognized that emerging real-time engagement technologies presented an opportunity to dramatically improve remote learning through social interaction. We have capitalized on this opportunity to create a virtual education environment that is engaging–and fun! It is our goal to unite 50 million students and teachers, from all around the world, by 2023” – Mohammed Aldhalaan, Co-Founder and CEO


Infinitely scalable voice and messaging

Noon’s aggressive growth plan requires a technology partner with a global footprint and the ability to scale with ease. Over the past eight months, Noon has expanded into four new markets with almost zero development effort on their side thanks to Agora’s global scalability. Noon is able to remain focused on growing their business while Agora ensures delivery of a quality voice and messaging experience across our global, infinitely scalable, software defined real-time network.


“We use Agora to power our platform’s core interactive learning experiences including classrooms, breakout sessions, interactive quizzes, etc. Since moving to Agora, our student net promoter score (NPS) score has jumped by 50%! Our users are pleased with the stability and reliability that Agora brings to the product.”- Mohammed Aldhalaan, Co-Founder and CEO
