Educational Institutions

Advancing Computer Science Education Globally

Empower your faculty members with effective tools and resources

We work with educational institutions to help teachers develop core computing knowledge and skills aligned to industry demands using current technologies–so they can teach students.

At Oracle Academy, we know that as an educational institution, you have a vested interest in the success of your students, from the time students enroll until well after graduation. We share this core goal of long-term student success.

Learning resources that are modern, engaging and offer sound educational and academic value to students and faculty are of high value. It's critical that you find the right resources to empower your faculty members as they work to ensure your students achieve post-graduation success, whether moving onto college, graduate school or into the job market.

This means keeping up with ever-changing technologies and software development skills so that your students will be best prepared–no matter what their futures hold. When it comes to computer science, computer engineering, and teaching best business practices leveraging technology, it can be difficult to keep up.

Oracle Academy can help. Our free program offers you and your teachers and faculty members access to a wide range of educational resources.
