e-Learning Digital Skills Development Programs to be launched at Concordia University of Edmonton in new partnership with RoboGarden Inc.

Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) is proud to announce a new partnership with RoboGarden Inc. that will provide online learning opportunities to develop digital skills.

Through this partnership, CUE will offer a number of new non-credit courses, including RoboGarden’s Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence Bootcamp and Full Stack Development Bootcamp. These courses have been developed on a game-based interactive platform, allowing learners to progress and develop skills in a condensed timeframe.

There is a growing demand for coding, user interface/user experience design, and machine learning and artificial intelligence training,” explains Stephen Mackenzie, Business Development Manager at RoboGarden. “Whether you are a new graduate, someone looking to upskill or re-train, an entrepreneur looking to launch a business, or someone looking to enjoy the flexibility of a global digital freelance market, these new courses will give you foundational skills and teach you how to apply them in the real world.”

The courses will be offered through CUE’s Office of Extension and Culture, and are open to learners of all ages and disciplines. It is not necessary to have a technical background.

These courses are an excellent complement to anyone’s education as they provide you with skills and experience from a technical perspective—an important requirement for the workforce of today and, especially, the future,” explains Dr. Manfred Zeuch, Vice-President, External Affairs and International Relations.

Registration is now open for the new courses, which will be starting on June 15, 2020.

Find out more information about the courses from instructors, speakers, and former students at our weekly webinars. Details will be announced soon.
