Job demand for Multimedia, Animation, Film and Creative Industries in Malaysia
The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) reiterated its commitment to drive the growth of the local creative multimedia
industry by naming export as one of the catalyst of growth. For the past six years, companies under MSC Malaysia’s Creative Multimedia Cluster (CMC) have displayed an encouraging cumulative average growth rate (CAGR) between 9-10% with companies’ revenues reaching RM6.99 billion in 2012.
In addition, Malaysia is now seen as a significant player in the creative content industry in the region. Creative contents produced by Malaysians are no longer confined to local audiences but also consumed by the expansive international audiences. This is reflected by the fact that 309 companies under CMC have collectively contributed RM487 million in exports to Malaysia’s GDP in 2012.
Speaking at the launch of the Kre8tif! Conference 2014, MDeC’s renowned conference for creative
industry players, Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, the Chief Executive Officer of MDeC said “Our creative multimedia industry could achieve higher growth if we manage to effectively tap into the broader international market. The Malaysian creative multimedia industry is currently estimated to be worth around RM16 billion.
From 2011to 2012, new investments by companies under CMC increased by 32% which is equivalent to an additional RM0.3 billion to the country’s GDP. This has also resulted in the creation of 1,887 new jobs. We believe that this achievement combined with the efforts in place under the National Key Economic Area – Communications, Content and Infrastructure of the Economic Transformation Programme driven by PEMANDU, the industry is on track to contribute an additional RM35.7 billion to the
country’s GDP and create over 43,163 jobs by 2020,”.
He further concluded, “Through strategic partnerships and programmes such as MAC3, IPCC, CILL and the Master Classes, MDeC provides a conducive and enabling environment designed to enable creative companies to harness their full potential and become a source of inspiration to new companies entering the industry.”

Teaching and Learning for the 3+0 BSc (Hons) Digital Film and 3D Animation Technology at APIIT
Different people learn in different ways and therefore the Programme utilises a range of different teaching methods and situations – lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops (skills-based), studio work, technology packages, project work, role-plays, virtual learning environments and web-pages etc. – that best deliver the specific learning outcomes of the modules.
Industrial visits and field trips will also be scheduled to provide a realistic exposure to live work environments. In addition, Personal Development Planning (PDP) is used at all levels of the awards through Pebblepad or other suitable means of recording. Pebblepad allows the students to keep a record of their development throughout their award.
Students are encouraged to participate with the professional world through study visits to film, TV, games, animation and film festivals which takes place every year.
Typically modules incorporate a variety of teaching and learning approaches into their delivery and as student’s progress from
Level 4 to Level 6 there is a change in emphasis from tutor-directed teaching within lectures and workshops to student centred independent learning.
This is reflected in a change in emphasis in Level 6 from teaching and learning through the completion of structured class activities, worksheets and assignments in Level 4 and Level 5 to the increasing involvement of students in project work where they can have considerable input into the choice of topics for investigation as well as both the design and implementation of appropriate field, lab, and literature based methods of enquiry (both individual and group based).
Directed study supports and builds upon the knowledge and skills learnt in class to provide a fuller understanding of the subject. Personal and module tutors are on hand to provide support to the students to discuss any queries, for advice on plans and initial drafts etc.
The curriculum is structured so that skills and knowledge developed lower levels can be transferred, re-applied and further developed between in the higher levels. The regular meetings which are built into the system and student appraisals ensure that students are constantly reflecting upon, adapting and enhancing their learning.
Assessment for the 3+0 BSc (Hons) Digital Film and 3D Animation Technology at APIIT
A range of assessment techniques are used including presentations, demonstrations, written reports, practical work, oral tests,
online tests, log books, exams, class tests, portfolios, group work, peer assessments and online blogs and forums where students present their work. The method of assessment for each module has been carefully considered by the teaching teams to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved balanced with maintaining academic rigour.
The majority of assessments are course work based. The award content is a mixture of theory and practice, using exams wouldn’t offer any educational benefits to the students. A number of compulsory but non assessed formative multiple choice tests are conducted in many modules. The tests are made available on LMS for a week at a time and are designed to engage the students in active learning as early as possible in the semester.
Problem based learning tasks are generally assessed the following week by peers who develop the student’s practical, theoretical, critical and analytical skills. The work has to be presented online or in class with a description on the learning and development cycle. The problems presented are outcome based and how the students get to a solution is managed with the help of the academic as the facilitator.
All these methods ensure that learning outcomes are tested in the most appropriate way; reflect the sorts of materials graduates
will be asked to prepare in future careers; and recognise that students have different abilities.
Although the practical and skills based nature of the CGI and Digital effects award and its delivery (including distance learning on some modules) of Staffordshire University means that the emphasis is on coursework, formal examinations and class-tests are also used to assess knowledge based modules across all three levels.
