eKelas with #CikguCikguUKM Part 2: Creating fun and interactive content, from home!

Maxis eKelas has been supporting students in their after-school learning and will continue to do so as students go through these unprecedented times. To this end, our collaboration with the Faculty of Education of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) has certainly helped us to enhance our bank of content in the eKelas portal. Recently, we conducted a virtual briefing session with close to 120 UKM graduate students on creating compelling and fun content.

What eKelas brings into this collaboration are the insights on students’ preferences and behaviors in consuming learning content. This also adds value to UKM’s students’ training to be teachers of the 21st century – complementing their own learning and helping them to create great content for their students to benefit from.. This time, by partnering with more graduate students from UKM’s Education Faculty and Distance Learning programme, we explored various types of software for content creation. With digital learning becoming increasingly mainstream in the new normal, it is extremely rewarding to giving back to the community with Maxis eKelas!
