Presentation on "The Cisco Networking Academy"


On Monday April 20th, 2015, there will be a presentation on "The Cisco Networking Academy" by Johannes Schulz and Carsten Johnsen of the Cisco Systems GmbH. The abstract of the talk is as follows:
Cisco supports the learning and teaching at university level and for vocational education and training since 1997. The objectives are to fight a skills shortage in the IT industry, support countries to improve their competitiveness and helping the individual participant to improve employability. The cornerstone of the Cisco Networking Academy Program is a learning platform that is used to deliver several courses around the topics of networking; operating systems and the Internet of Everything.The global academic partnership is constructed as a public-private partnership between Cisco and a network of government agencies, and 10,000 academies in schools, universities and adult education institutions. The use of the Cisco learning material is free of charge for universities and students.
Courses are delivered through a cloud-based collaboration platform with an emphasis on handson learning and career preparation for a growing number of networking technology jobs. NetAcad courses reach 1 million students each year. 5 million students have completed courses since 1997. The statistics for Germany: 35,000 students per year and 185.000 since inception. The flagship course is preparing students to pass an external certification test to reach the industry standard CCNA = Cisco Certified Network Associate. It can be used to support an overview lecture with additional online learning material, simulation and lab activities. The combination of a university degree with vendor backed certifications improves the career opportunities of every individual student.
During the lecture the structure and course content will be explained in more detail. Students will be able to participate in courses of the Networking Academy in the future. The prerequisite is that the University Goettingen makes the decision to join the partner network.
