UNiK was founded in the late 1980s by Mr A.K.Ng, a former secondary school teacher. He saw a commercial potential of the locally written past-year examination papers for Penilaian Darjah 5, SRP and SPM. Despite being inexperienced in the publishing industry, he was determined and believed in his vision.

 

With his entrepreneurial spirit and more than 15 years teaching experiences in elite schools, he worked at expanding the publishing house and creating UNiK into a technology-based publishing house.

 

UNiK has grown by leaps and bounds and is now recognised as the people's publisher for its quality yet affordable publications in the country.

 

In 1996, the Malaysian Government launched the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) programme in order to accelerate the objectives of Vision 2020 and to transform the country into a modern state, with the adoption of a knowledge-based society framework. Education in multimedia as one of the MSC flagship applications pulled UNiK into the new digital frontier where new ways of learning and teaching are explored. This provides UNiK with a competitive edge over traditional publishing through innovative development of technology-based educational contents.

 

To stay relevant, UNiK continuously responded to the needs of the 21st century by creating technology-based learning and teaching solutions that are user-friendly, interactive and fun for teachers and students. Yet we have not forgotten our founder's passion for education. He had always emphasised that underprivileged learners should have the equal opportunity in access to quality education. Thus, we spread our area of interests in the development and distribution of multimedia courseware, mobile applications, online learning platform and creative contents for IPTV technology to teachers, parents, MOE and private entities, at affordable price.

 

Today, UNiK's technology-based contents have benefited various levels of learners in over 50 countries through digital platforms. We have strived and will continue to strive to make headway towards sharing our values and passion for many others globally.

Vision

To build the foundation for world-class education.
UNiK’s interpretation of this is to transform the way learning takes place by bringing the most innovative solutions to the learning environment. By providing appropriate resources, UNiK believes that educators and students will experience a new way of learning and teaching that is more effective, engaging and motivating.

Mission

To inspire the leaders of tomorrow by championing the use of educational technology for the nurturing and education of school-going children.
UNiK’s interpretation of this is to bring solutions to educators that will enable their students to succeed. UNiK understands the expectations of parents, teachers and educators, and the need for learners to achieve specific learning outcomes and measurable results. Towards this end, UNiK strives to create solutions to meet those demands.

UNiK’s instructional strategy

UNiK's strategy is to shift the teaching to a new paradigm, moving from

  • teacher-centred to learner-centred
  • instruction to construction
  • reinforcement to interest
  • obedience to autonomy
  • coercion to co-operation

General features

To achieve the best possible impact, UNiK’s multimedia production team develops each learning concept logically and in a structured manner, applies what is known from neuroscience about how the brain learns. Its programmes combine the knowledge of neuroscience with technology, psychology, educational content and pedagogy.
