Frequently Asked Questions

+How are classes conducted in the Remote Immersive format?

Here's what you can expect:

1. Lessons on the Learning Portal
You will learn by accessing weekly lectures via our learning portal. Unlike typical 2-hour long lectures, our lectures are in the form of bite-sized videos to help maximize knowledge absorbtion and maintain your attention. There will also be short quizzes to test your understanding.

We believe in hands-on learning. There will be weekly assignments that you'll need to complete before the submission deadline, and you will receive personalized feedback by the mentors.

+Is this just an online course?

Nope, this course offers more than just any other online courses.

This course progresses on a weekly basis, you will be required to follow through and learn the topics weekly by watching the lectures, and completing assignments by the end of the week. Your assignments will then be reviewed by the instructor on how you may improve your work and if there are any gaps in your understanding.

Apart from that, there are also live conference calls (what we call 'Saturdays with Xinch') and online community portal where you get the chance to interact with the instructor and your peers.

Unlike online courses where you learn by yourself, you will get an immersive experience as you progress through the course.

+What do I need to prepare for the course?
  1. A laptop with Google Chrome.
  2. A working credit/debit card (To activate your Facebook and Google Ads account).
  3. A business idea that you would want to work on. Due to the nature of this Quantum Degree, you'll be basing your assignments on a business that you would like to launch. If you don't have a business idea yet, don't worry! You can use a existing business that your friends/family are running as training grounds for digital marketing (with their permission, of course).
+Do I need to spend money to run campaigns/ads during the Quantum Degree?

To get real world experience in digital marketing, we encourage students to launch their own campaigns on various platforms like Google Adwords, Google Display Network, Facebook and Instagram Ads. When you run live campaigns, besides getting a better feel of how these platforms work, you'll also gain experience on analysing and optimising your campaigns. The amount spent on these platforms will be entirely dependent on your budget, and you can go as low as RM5/day for your campaign duration.

We also understand that some students may feel uncomfortable with spending money to run live campaigns on these platforms, so it is optional (though we really encourage you to run live campaigns to get the most out of the course).

+How should I attend the Saturday sessions with the instructor?

You will be notified by our course coordinator on the details of the Saturday sessions. The Saturday sessions will be held online via a conference call (with video), so you'll be able to join in from anywhere. Just make sure you're at a location with good internet connection.

+What if I can't make it for the Saturday sessions?

Saturday sessions are recorded and uploaded so you will be able to view it later.

+Do I get 1-on-1 mentorship with the instructor?

In the Saturday sessions, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss with the instructor. With that said, you may also message instructors on the online community portal at anytime.

+Is this course HRDF claimable?

All our courses are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.

+What are the job prospects like for Digital Marketers? And how will NEXT Academy help me?

In general, Digital Marketers are extremely in demand all over the world. There is currently a huge shortage of skilled digital marketers and this will continue for decades to come. NEXT Academy has links with many technology startups across the region and will attempt to connect its talented graduates with the best startups.
