Educational Materials Designed For All Types Of Learners
As explained in the announcement, most of the Academy’s educational materials can be bought online. According to the organization’s blog post, “the IOTA Foundation offers a selection of online trainings as well as blended trainings for coders & developers.”
There are also several additional materials for “non-coders” including “blockchain enthusiasts, futurists, and students, but also corporate project managers, concepters and c-level managers,” IOTA Foundation’s blog post revealed. Moreover, other materials will reportedly be added to the current list of educational content in the coming weeks.
The IOTA Academy also offers students the option to earn an “IOTA Developer Certification,” which is awarded to those who successfully complete a “written and oral assessment” administered by “members of the IOTA Foundation.”
Notably, the IOTA Foundation has now joined several other cryptocurrency-related organizations and companies that have launched their own educational initiatives. For example, Malta-based crypto exchange, Binance has introduced the Binance Academy, which allows students to learn about various crypto-related topics.
