In today’s world, businesses can only survive and remain competitive if they embrace and leverage core technologies like cloud, AI, and data science. These are critical to driving significant growth and innovation within organizations, and are essential for the future of business. The courses featured in this program provide you with the core foundational knowledge of all three core technologies, including their business value and impact they provide, their applications and use cases, and an understanding of how these technologies work. You will not only become familiar with the common terms and tools associated with cloud, AI, and data science, but also experience them in action and learn hands-on skills to start working with them. Each course includes hands-on assignments and interactions that demonstrate specific technologies in action. These practical exercises are suitable for even those without any specialized IT skills or programming knowledge. In fact, there is no prerequisite knowledge required to be successful in this program other than basic computer literacy skills and experiences with devices that support modern web browsers. Almost any organization that looks to disrupt or pioneer in a global or local market, and any individual looking to contribute to this vision needs to understand and leverage these essential technologies. What’s more, having skills and understanding in all three together will further increase your competitiveness and value in your company and the job market at large, and ultimately help you and your company reach your full potential.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
