The Malaysian Qualification Act 2007 brought about the establishment of the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) on 1st November 2007. As an agency entrusted to implement the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF), MQA had developed a set of criteria which clarifies the academic levels, learning outcomes, and credit system based on student academic load. The Ministry of Education (MoE) Malaysia also had requested all public higher education institutions to align all their existing and new academic programmes with the MQF requirements, which include:

  o Programme learning outcomes of any (diploma/foundation, undergraduate, and postgraduate) programmes should address the knowledge, practical skills, communication skills, leadership and team skills, problem solving and scientific skills, managerial and entrepreneurial skills, information management and lifelong learning, and also values, attitudes and professionalism.

The iCLASS System (which was initially known as eCourseOutline) can offer many benefits, including:

  o Centralised Database
All new or revised course outlines will be stored in the central database system.
  o Effective Quality Control
Once the course outline has been approved by the Senate, user will not be able to make amendment to the course outline stored in the central database. Whatever changes made by the individual lectures at the course level can easily be compared with the original course outline endorsed by the Senate. This could serve as quality control mechanism for the university academic programme.
