Microsoft to Deliver Tech Training for Free to Students through edX
FREMONT, CA: edX, a non-profit organization that provides free online courses and classes, has partnered with Microsoft to empower its students with technical knowledge to build innovative applications, services, and experiences on the Microsoft platform. This program is now open for enrollment.
edX is a provider of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) which has earlier partnered with other big organizations such as Linux Foundation and Google before it joined hands with Microsoft, reports Mariella Moon from engadget.
Microsoft, which is now recognized as the first corporate member to offer MOOCs on edX.org, will help the global learning community of EdX to acquire the core development skills which are key to have good prospects in the world driven by cloud and mobile.
Experts from Microsoft will impart key skills featuring interactive coding, assessments, and exercises. The classes for the free Microsoft courses will commence at the end of March. Candidates who wish to obtain a verified certificate can get it for a fee.
Some of the courses outlined in this training program include: programming with C#; Introduction to TypeScript; introduction to Bootstrap; building cloud apps with Microsoft Azure; introduction to Office 365 APIs; Windows PowerShell fundamentals.
This new program builds on the Microsoft and edX collaboration for Office Mix through which educators produce videos and online lectures doing students a world of good in learning technologies that are shaping the world. The audio and video recordings, screen captures, hyperlinks, and digital ink help students in achieving greater results.
