IBM印度免费区块链课程大受欢迎

今年6月,IBM宣布为印度学生提供免费的区块链在线课程,课程为期12周,由IBM与印度著名在线学习平台-国家技术增强学习计划(NPTEL)-联合提供。具体课程将由IBM India的区块链和智能合约研究员Praveen Jayachandran和IIT Guwahati教授Sandip Chakraborty教授共同授课。

然而IBM没有想到的是,仅仅是第一期课程《区块链架构设计和使用案例》就已经收到了超过2.1万个注册申请,甚至是有些供不应求了。

突如其来的工作量让IBM后端团队有些措手不及。为此,IBM向所有提交首期课程申请的用户发送了一封邮件。

邮件表示,由于注册人数较多,后端团队正在努力扩容课程容量并加速审批。请使用非gmail注册课程(如果使用了gmail邮箱,请改为大学或工作邮箱)。具体的审批时限目前尚不清楚,请申请人耐心等待。

其实,由于近年来区块链产业的就业机会不断增加,学生对区块链技术的兴趣也随之水涨船高。

最近由加密货币交易所Coinbase进行的一项调查发现,世界上近一半的顶尖大学现在正在开设区块链技术课程。

When IBM announced a free online blockchain course for Indian students in June, it probably didn’t anticipate the response it would get. The inaugural edition of the course – titled “Blockchain Architecture Design and Use Cases” – has seen more than 21,000 registrations.

In fact, the course has proved to be so popular that it can barely keep up with the demand. In an email sent to course participants today, the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) revealed that the unexpected interest in the course has created a backlog of registrations on IBM’s website. The cause is students trying to sign up for the IBM blockchain starter program as part of their coursework.

Hard Fork has since obtained a copy of the email, here is what it said:

There have been a huge number of requests for starter plan due to this course. The backend team is working on increasing capacity and approving the free credits for the registrants from this course. Please use a non-gmail address when registering for starter plan (if you used a gmail address, please register again with a university or work e-mail). We do not know how long it will take for registrations to be approved, so please wait to get an e-mail approving your free credits.

IBM is offering the 12-week course in collaboration with National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), a popular elearning platform in India. The course is taught by Praveen Jayachandran, Blockchain and Smart Contracts researcher at IBM India, and Sandip Chakraborty, a professor at IIT Guwahati.

There has been a rising interest towards blockchain technology among students due to increased employment opportunities in the sector. A recent survey conducted by cryptocurrency exchange desk Coinbase found that nearly half of the world’s top universities are now teaching courses on blockchain technology.

We have reached out to IBM for a comment. If we get a response, we’ll update the story.
