Senior Director, EMEA

On July 6, 2020, Oracle Academy hosted more than 240 teachers and students to a live webinar, “Learn how to build enterprise applications with Oracle APEX.” Participants came from a range of academic departments, including computer science, engineering and non-IT related departments, and engaged in online-hosted hands-on labs.

Salim Hlayel, Principal Product Manager, Oracle Application Express (APEX), delivered the technical sessions, which were four hours each. Each included a practical demonstration of applications development in Oracle APEX, and then participants had the opportunity to hone and practice their knowledge in three designated hands-on labs.

Additionally, educators participated in an online demonstration on how to access Oracle Academy hands-on workshops, which make experiences with computing fun and engaging for students. Attendees also learned how to engage Oracle APEX as a teaching and learning tool to interest students with application development concepts in a real and meaningful way. 

Oracle Academy provides members with a comprehensive range of learning resources, including the Oracle Application Express (APEX) Development Foundations course, which provides the curriculum to faculty to teach students the techniques and tools required to design, develop, and deploy database-driven web applications using Oracle APEX.

Oracle Academy values educators as our partners who lead innovative student learning in and outside of the classroom, We are pleased to bring knowledge building events such as this webinar to our members.
