Corporate and Education
For business plan subscribers, as announced earlier businesses can enjoy a six-month free subscription on Maxis’ Managed Unified Communications through Microsoft Teams for Teams Phone System and Teams Calling packages (first-come-first-serve). There is also a two-month free trial for fixed mobile convergence via Voice Connect App.
Maxis also continues to support the community with its flagship programme eKelas, by enabling students from the rural communities to continue learning during the MCO, with free access and unlimited use of data on the eKelas portal from their homes. The portal provides learning content for Science, Mathematics and English for Year 6 to Form 5. Additionally, eKelas students have special access to the National Library’s 14,000 eBooks and audio books.
eKelas is also ramping up digital engagement in its portal, where students will be able to interact with the portal’s Community Manager, Abang Portal, for guided learning, every Monday to Friday between 9am to 4pm. Students will be directed to the learning modules for the day for discussions and questions. Meanwhile, live tutorial sessions on exam-focused topics will be available on 3-4 April and 17-18 April for interactive learning with experienced teachers. Every action or task that eKelas students complete in the portal will gain them points which will qualify them to be selected to participate in experiential activities such as exam clinics or workshops.
