Some have described us as the EdTech pioneers of the Arab World. But buzz-words aside, we're simply working to ensure that the education your child gets is up to their standards.
Chances are your child has played a game on a smartphone made in China, watched American cartoons on a tablet, and video called you when you were in Dubai. All before they ever stepped foot in a class room. Today, our team is working on projects that ensure their standards are met the next time they are in class.
We work on advancing education in the Arab World by providing up-to-date educational content, state-of-the art on-demand deliverytechnology, and easy access to both.
We believe that accessing good, engaging, relevant, and up-to-dateeducation should be as easy as turning on your phone or TV.
