Emergence of The Digital Learning Era
EduCloud, was launched in conjunction with JobMatching PTPTN at a ceremony to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN).
Following its launch, EduCloud will now start to engage in outreach to more than 2 million users at institutions of higher learning and the public sector. There are an estimated 1.3 million higher education students in Malaysia and an estimated 1 million civil servants who are registered with Prestariang via Microsoft’s MLAs.
The integrated digital platform of EduCloud is set to transform traditional teaching and learning methods to support Entrepreneurship, Education and e-Commerce in the education sector.
EduCloud’s built-in digital capabilities such as analytics enable B2C ventures to profile consumers in order to tailor products and services accordingly. They can also leverage on digital marketing instruments to communicate with the consumer base, whether it is through social media, downloadable apps or push/pull promotions.
For Prestariang, EduCloud is a channel to move beyond the Government to the mass consumer market. We are hopeful this will eventually create within the Group an enterprise culture anchored on constant and continuous innovation.
The value of EduCloud lies in its potential to tap future business opportunities in the digital realm. Akin to SKIN, the cloudbased integrated education and services digital engagement platform is also a vehicle to develop new digital technologies and digital talents.
EduCloud seeks to address changing trends in education by making it more accessible via the online delivery of learning and training, and job profiling and matching. In this way, it is also a platform for lifelong learning.
A single services-based digital platform to support learning, engagement and innovation in education in Malaysia and ASEAN.
