Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – airasia academy, Capital A’s digital edtech company, has recently rebranded as ‘Outclass’, a learning experience platform designed to enable individuals to develop in a changing workforce context. 

Outclass expands on airasia academy’s tradition of bridging the computer skills gap, it now provides a personalised learning experience to assist users in achieving their career goals.

Individuals and organisational leadership can use Outclass as a tool to meet talent development needs, enable worker potential, and get ready for a changing market. With aspirations to grow into in-demand fields like sustainability and ESG through a relationship with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), it now provides fifteen career options in the technology industry. 

Outclass also stands in contrast to typical Learning Management Systems (LMS) with its full Learning Experience Platform (LXP). This versatile platform meets both individual and organisational needs. For individuals, Outclass uses the Big Five OCEAN-based personality test, co-developed with experts from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Institute of Ethnic Studies (UKM KITA), to personalise the learning journey and empower career growth by matching learners with the most appropriate career tracks.

The platform creates a highly dynamic environment by creating performance-based goals, providing analytical dashboards, and issuing certificates. For businesses, Outclass provides flexible, and scalable LXP solutions with white-labelling possibilities. 

YB Gobind Singh Deo, Minister of Digital Malaysia, said, “The Ministry of Digital Malaysia is honoured to witness the launch of Outclass today, a pivotal step in advancing digital reskilling and upskilling in Malaysia. This initiative is a testament to our unwavering commitment to equipping the nation’s talent with the digital competencies to thrive in a rapidly evolving landscape.
