Wrapping up 2021 with the 101 Awards, CLASS101 plans to offer a wider range of classes next year. With a goal to become a go-to learning community for digital art enthusiasts, the platform will diversify its digital arts category with courses in computer animation and motion graphics. On Dec. 24, CLASS101 launched an Early Bird course on digital animation with Marvin Te, Creative Director at Plainly Simple Studios.

The platform also plans to expand its categories and introduce more classes in music, photography and technology. As CLASS101 is headquartered in South Korea, home of the global K-pop phenomenon, the platform already offers music production classes by Gray, Groovyroom and KASS, who’ve created countless hits for K-pop artists BTS, Twice, ITZY, Jay Park and more.

Equipped with the success formula of the headquarters, the U.S. counterpart plans to offer twice as many classes in 2022 according to Grit Han, Head of Global Business at CLASS101.

“In 2022, we plan to achieve exponential growth and become a major contender in the global online education market,” Han said.
