Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, is launching a brand new online tech education platform he’s calling Woz U, that’s designed to promote technology jobs and the talents required to enter the enterprise. Through the years, Wozniak hopes to extend the initiative to include as many as 30 bodily locations around the world and offer courses on eveeything from software programing, engineering and information technology to mobile app development and cybersecurity, amongst others. It’s unclear whether guides(learning tools) could be supplied at no cost, or whether or not Woz U plans on charging for any detail of the online education platform. The web site didn’t clarify that.
Woz U also offers access to tech agencies that are interested and would like to make use of the gear and sources provided to recruit and train employees. The platform would be made available to students k-12 via partnerships with college districts too. Down the line, Woz U desires to offer one-on-one instruction to students and, afterward, to offer its personal accelerator software for prospective startup founders. the general purpose is to ignite peoples interest in what Woz U calls STEAM careers, on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, with the addition of arts probably a nod to Wozniak’s role at Apple and fellow co-founder Steve Jobs’ lifelong task to merge technology with humanities.
Woz U didn’t state how much it is offering it’s courses to students
“Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into so much debt,” Wozniak said in a declaration. “people are often afriad to choose a technology based career because they think they can’t do it. I know they can and I want to show them how. My entire life I have worked to build, develop and create a better world through technology and I have always respected education. Now is the time for Woz U and we are only getting started”.
There aren’t any pricing information on any of the present or planned features. But, already a mobile app is out with a few introductory courses, and you could also “join” in Woz U starting these days, although it’s unclear what exactly that is involved beyond submitting a few bits of personal contact statistics. The entire enterprise appears refined enough, even though it has to be mentioned though that Woz U’s preliminary companion is the for-profits Southern Careers Institute, based totally out of Austin, Texas. So don’t assume the whole lot in Woz U to be free.
