Coursera offers more than 4,000 free online training programs in Catalonia that include Blockchain technology

The Secretariat of Digital Policies of the Government of Catalonia has reached an agreement with the eLearning Coursera platform to offer an online training catalogue with more than 4,000 free courses available to the general public, 83 of which correspond to Blockchain technology.

According to a statement published by the company, they said they seek to help governments around the world to provide unemployed workers with free access to 4,000 online courses.

Registration until 30 September this year
The aim of the initiative is to help affected workers develop the knowledge and skills to become re-employed. Federal, state, and local governments can enroll until September 30, 2020, and those enrolled by then can learn until the end of the year.

Students, professors and administrators at the Universidad de los Andes will be able to access more than 4,000 specialized courses and programs, from all the universities and companies collaborating with the platform.

Coursera’s offering includes courses from some of the world’s leading universities, such as the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Duke University, the University of Michigan, Yale University and others, covering critical business skills, technology and data science.

The initiative also includes professional certificates from industry educators such as the Google IT Support Professional Certificate, designed specifically to train people for high-demand jobs.

Other detailed trainings are in web and mobile application development, big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain or video game design. Training is also provided on the gender perspective in the field of ICT, entrepreneurship and digital social innovation.

The training offer is addressed to all levels and groups of population, and although the selection of courses offered by Coursera is mainly focused on digital skills, you can also find hundreds of proposals in areas such as mathematics, social sciences, health, languages, arts and humanities or personal development, among others.

Developed by leading universities and large technology companies, these courses provide access to a complete training experience: videos and webinars, online exercises, discussion forums, specific questionnaires and certificates of professionalism.

In addition, from the Coursera mobile application, which is available for Bitqt and Android, you can learn from anywhere, anytime.

COVID-19’s effect on online learning could extend the range of popular topics. But so far, training for the technology economy is where the digital learning money is. With more work and daily life moving online – some of it permanently – that probably won’t change.
