Edu Tech Marketplace

Cover Story

About

Dr. Zaharuddin Abdul Rahman, Ph.D, has been in the education industry for more than 28 years at various stages i.e Universities, public teaching, corporate training, academic conferences, and seminars either online or offline. He has been providing guidance and knowledge via his writings on the net since 2001. He has published 23 books cover various topics in three languages.

In 2019, he established MyClaaz, an education marketplace where users can book teachers for school and professional subjects online and offline.

Initially, the platform is targeting school students with the purpose to consolidate private tutor services’ information for parents. This is because he found it difficult to detain tutors’ information while searching for a suitable private tutor for his children.

However, not long after they launched the website, they realized that was too typical and narrow of a target. To make the platform more sustainable, they decided to cater this platform to a wider scope of learners and trainers globally. Thus, they opened up the target audience from school learners to professional learners and general public subjects like cooking, language, exercise.

MyClaaz wasn’t an idea born from the pandemic, hence its offerings of one-on-one classes. But the pandemic changed its plans. With new features like event creations, trainers no longer have to rely on one-on-one classes to earn. Hence, ever since the pandemic, they encourage trainers to sell educational event tickets, e-books, and teaching videos.

Like any other product being sold online, quality is often a concern, perhaps even more so regarding education. The site is a registered training provider under the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF), and MyClaaz has some basic vetting procedures in place.

At the same time, MyClaaz is collaborating with school admins, universities, and colleges to source quality trainers and lecturers. Users that have completed the courses will be given a certificate.

If somehow a trainer bypasses MyClaaz’s vetting and students send in genuine reports about a fake qualification or a harmful event, the site withholds the trainer’s payment and returns it to the student. The trainer’s account will also be deactivated, as per the T&Cs.

Moving forward, MyClaaz plans to go beyond Malaysia and expand its services to our neighbouring countries including Thailand, India, Indonesia, Brunei, and Singapore.

MyClaaz has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
