Open source curriculum for EMEA universities

News: An open source academy offers software development courses to universities

By Sam

Red Hat launched an Academy, an open source education on curriculum, labs, performance-based testing, and educator training and support available to universities in the Europe, Middle East & Africa.

The firm said student materials for Red Hat Academy are available online.

Participating qualified universities get access to the Red Hat Academy curriculum enabling instructors to prepare for class instruction and personal certification.

Instructors are encouraged to enroll in Red Hat’s commercial training and exams for certifications, such as Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) or Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).

The core curriculum consists of the Red Hat System Administration I and II courses followed by the Red Hat Certified System Administration (RHCSA) exam and certification. Upon completion of the core curriculum, students can take the Red Hat Administration III Course Path I, leading to the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam and certification, or they can take the Cloud Computing Administration Course Path II, which leads to the Red Hat Certified System Administrator in Red Hat OpenStack exam and certification.

Middleware learning paths are also available, as standalone paths with the core curriculum not prerequisite. The Red Hat JBoss Application Administration course can be taken by those with system administration skills in Linux, Unix or Windows, and students with a foundation in Java programming can take the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Development course.

Jens Ziemann, director, Training, EMEA, Red Hat, said: "The computer science field is evolving rapidly and universities have realized that they need to ensure the courses that they provide deliver enterprise-ready information and skills."
