Our story

Back in 2017, Dr. Leo had a challenging time teaching programming in a coding class to 100 students. With inaccessible teaching tools, individual technical problems and incompatible pace of learning, Dr. Leo struggled and sweated his way through the lesson. Inevitably, only a handful of students managed to follow, given the limited class time. The experience inspired and propelled Dr. Leo to establish MagiCube. With the help of his team, Dr. Leo developed a cloud-based real-time interactive education platform, Una, which means ‘together’ in Latin. As the name suggests, Dr. Leo wishes to bring teachers and students together into a fun and interactive process of learning. 

In just a little more than 2 years, Una has become a Microsoft Global Training Partner. The proven popularity of Una is attributed to various user-friendly features, such as the easy setup of virtual classrooms, the integration of several AI technologies and more. Currently, Una provides courses to K-12 students and schoolteachers on topics related to Artificial Intelligence (AI). Students will be able to obtain the Microsoft AI certificate and create their own AI devices after completing the courses; whilst teachers may employ our award-winning platform and meticulously scaffolded teaching materials to design their own AI learning activities based on their students’ needs.
