Q: What are examples of new Academy initiatives you’re currently working on?
A: A common denominator for all Academy courses is that content is hands-on, interactive, realistic and visual. There’s no ‘death by Power Point’ in our classes as students work directly with the cobot, either in real life or through our free simulator. I’d like to highlight three areas that we’re focusing on right now, all shaped by user feedback:
Microcredentials and Education Programs
Offering micro-credentials that you can add to your CV has become extremely popular and sought after. All surveys show that a vast majority of human resource managers are interested in the micro-credentials of potential hires - while most employees also respond that they want more opportunities for career growth We have started offering the world’s first cobot curriculum for schools and colleges available through our Academy Learning Management System. Schools can now purchase our cobots with relevant application hardware (conveyors, grippers, etc.), 32 lessons of curriculum, an online platform to manage the content, - and a certification of teachers to enable their students to earn an industry-recognized certificate they can use to stand out in the crowd and officially show their mastery of a particular cobot skill set.
