Oracle Academy recently held a professional development program for computer science educators from various Muhammadiyah universities who are members of the Association of Informatics Department Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah Higher Education (APSI PTMA). One hundred educators attended Java and database training events over a two-week period to prepare them to deliver Oracle Academy curriculum at their respective institutions.
Oracle Academy established the partnership agreement with APSI PTMA in early 2020 to expand Oracle Academy in Indonesia. We now support an additional 40 universities and vocational colleges with 50 computer science departments in 18 cities and regions in Indonesia.
APSI PTMA is an association of departments that implement computer science curriculum in universities under the Muhammadiyah and 'Aisyiyah institutions. The function of the association is as a communication and cooperation forum to improve management, provide guidance, and improve the quality of higher education.
“The opportunity to cooperate with Oracle via the Oracle Academy program is our honor. We are proud to partner with Oracle Academy to advance computer science education, knowledge enhancement, skills development, and professional development of our educators under APSI PTMA so that they can use an industry-standard curriculum and software and keep pace with the latest technology,” said Yeni Dwi Rahayu, M.Kom, Coordinator of APSI PTMA, and a faculty member at Universitas Muhammadiyah Jember Under Muhammadiyah Assembly. “We hope this good relationship will evolve over a long time. We are much obliged to the Oracle Academy country manager, Indonesia & Malaysia, and the team. We really appreciate this opportunity.”
