Education

Looking to enhance your knowledge about Big Data? Well here’s your lucky chance. Edureka, a live and interactive e-learning platform, is teaming up with real-time open-source Data Integration solution provider Talend to enhance curriculum for the professional community. Edureka already offers more than 85 courses relating to Big Data, the cloud, coding languages, mobile development and others to help business professionals enhance their skill-sets with industry-relevant materials to support career growth.

According to Business Standard, more than 250,000 people have taken courses on the Edureka platform, accounting for more than 50,000 hours of live classes. Courses are instructor-led and supported by online resources, allowing professionals the flexibility to learn at their own pace, no matter where they are. Courses offered through the Edureka platform are curated by experts in the field, and coursework is monitored constantly in order to ensure that the materials being presented remain relevant.

Edureka’s Chief Marketing Officer explains: “A few months ago, we realized that a lot of our learners, especially those who aspired for a career in Big Data and Hadoop, were looking for credible courses on Talend. We gave to them a course specially curated by experts, and based on real-life use cases. It was an instant hit. We were able to articulate Talend’s ability to provide real-time data and application integration capabilities through our course. Through our partnership with Talend, we will be able to go a step further to helping learners by proving, more insights and industry-aligned content to accelerate their big data and data Integration careers.”

In response, Talend’s CEO Ashley Stirrup explains: “Through our direct collaboration with Edureka, we will be able to help shape the curriculum to match what is going on in the big data market and help train a new generation of developers to support as they transition to data-driven enterprises.”

This is a really exciting concept, both for those looking to learn more about Big Data and for solution providers. Given how quickly the Big Data market has evolved in recent years, flexible coursework and training for professionals who already reside in the field but want to hone their skills seems like a great idea. On the flip side, vendors like Talend get in the ground floor with prospective clients, providing exposure to their own platforms and increasing the chance that students will take these solutions with them in the future. In this way, e-learning is quickly becoming an important way for data scientists and developers to keep tabs with what is going on in their sector.
