Meet eKelas Tutor Moms And Dads: How Maxis Employees Become Engaging Teachers
Singing, acting and even rapping? That was how our employees jazzed things up for our eKelas students. Their unique lesson plans created a lively and engaging learning experience, and the students loved it! 22 Maxis employees became tutor moms and dads for a day in conjunction with Mother’s and Father’s Day, for eKelas students at participating Pusat Internet 1Malaysia (PI1M) centres across 10 states.
The tutor moms and dads were already familiar with the syllabus having had to coach their own children in doing their homework and during exams. Beyond that, they also shared study tips and motivated the students to do better. To ensure that they were comfortable in facing a classroom full of students, Maxis moms and dads first went through a fun training session that included vigorous classroom simulations.
Excited tutors couldn’t wait to try the newly acquired skills. One tutor mom, Nadia Nishaa Binti Shamsuri from People & Organisation shared, “The children were really interactive as my materials also included top songs they could relate to!” Another tutor mom, Nur Elina Wong Abdullah from Sales & Service, even conducted her class virtually from Menara Maxis. “Teaching virtually is a bit different as I can’t be there with the students physically. So I used my voice, called out their names and kept asking how they were doing. The important thing was to have fun with the students,” she said.
Celcom Axiata Bhd (Celcom) and Maxis Berhad (Maxis) successfully conducted Southeast Asia’s first 5G Multi Operator Core Network (MOCN) trial, achieving peak speeds of more than 1.1Gbps in an outdoor environment at trial sites in Langkawi, Kedah.
Showcasing the potential of 5G in education, Maxis demonstrated its 5G use case, the virtual reality (VR) experience for Science learning in its eKelas programme to Yang Amat Berhormat Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, the Prime Minister of Malaysia at Pusat Internet IOCC today. The VR learning experience by Maxis is the only 5G use case in the education vertical being piloted under the 5G Demonstration Projects in Langkawi.
