Huawei has announced the Huawei Academy, which will give Huawei users in Malaysia the ability to take online masterclasses from the comfort of home. The Huawei Academy will be hosted on the Huawei Video app—a video streaming app that’s available on all of the Chinese company’s smartphones and tablets.
There are 300 videos/classes that are now available to all Huawei users, with 22 “trained and experienced” tutors offering expertise in their respective fields. These include badminton classes from national shuttler Goh Liu Ying—although it’s a little hard to imagine how a badminton class will be held over a virtual medium. There are also acting lessons from local model and actress, Sangeeta Krishnasamy, along with futsal tips from Syed Adney.
Additionally, there are lessons on cycling from Aldrian Yeo and Fatehah Mustapa, along with mobile photography tips from Madnor Kassim. On a more technical note, you can also pick up the basics of C++ programming with five minute tips from T.S. Khoh Wee How.
While local schools have resumed in Malaysia, the idea of remote learning is still one that is very relevant in today’s world. As such, tips on various subjects for UPSR, PT3 (formerly known as PMR), and SPM are also provided through “courses” on the Huawei Academy. The selection of courses, according to Huawei, has been curated based on the local relevance of each subject, with the top three areas (in terms of interest) being UPSR/SPM. acting courses, and sports courses.
To access the Huawei Academy, all you need to do is to open the Huawei Video app on your smartphone (which has to be a Huawei device, of course). However, do note that not all content on the Huawei Video app is free of charge. Instead, Huawei is offering free premium access to designated channels on Huawei video for new purchases of the Huawei P40 series, Nova 7 series, and the MatePad series.
Some of the content that’s available on Huawei’s native video streaming platform comes from partners such as the BBC Studio, Daily Motion, Mediacorp, TVB, and even Astro. 4K resolution is available for certain videos, with a vast variety of dramas, movies, documentaries, and video entertainment sitting within the Huawei Video app.
