Oracle Academy and Oracle Volunteers Engage with Educators in Taiwan

The Department of Information Management, Chung-Hua University (CHU), Taiwan, has been a member of Oracle Academy since 2005, utilizing the program’s free teaching and learning resources. Their students learn Oracle database management through a formal college curriculum and are subsequently qualified to take examinations for Oracle professional certificates to position them to start their careers with success.

Dr. Lee Chi-Chung, chairman of the Professional Master Program of Advanced Database Management, said, “As of 2018, more than 3,000 students attending the university have taken the Oracle database management courses. Chung Hua University is a valued Academy member, and the relationship has been recognized as an outstanding example in education in Taiwan.”

In addition to providing curriculum and resource support, Oracle Academy worked with Oracle Volunteers to share time and talents to support educators and students through mentoring, teaching, and coaching. These Oracle experts provided informative sessions, giving examples of how new technology is being applied to business. The AI+ Experience Centre recently inaugurated at CHU was the venue for an Educator’s Day event in Hsin-Chu City, Taiwan. Rick Chuang, Oracle Master Principal Solution Engineer, provided a session entitled “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Service Application,” which demonstrated Oracle’s pragmatic approach to AI in business transactions. 

In keeping with Chung Hua University's objective of trying to make students "job-ready," the Oracle volunteer experts provided an informative session that gave concrete examples of how new technology is being applied to business. Educators particularly liked the case study demonstration of insights derived from Oracle, and students enjoyed learning more about careers in technology and the way artificial intelligence is transforming business.
