Oracle Academy Presents at EduTech Africa 2019 Conference

Jane Richardson
Senior Director, EMEA

I was delighted to attend the second EduTech Africa Conference held in Johannesburg, South Africa, on October 9 -10, 2019. This event brought together educators, MOE representatives, and educational NGOs from all over the African regions. The conference had the endorsement of the Department of Basic Education of South Africa.

Oracle Academy was pleased to have a booth at the event to showcase our free educational classroom resources to the many attendees, who were interested in our program benefits and curriculum.

We were able to demonstrate to local educators that the Oracle Academy curriculum in Java Fundamentals and Database Design and Programming with SQL are aligned to the South African Qualifications Agency.

Our Oracle Academy Senior Director for Member Education and Curriculum Development Willie McCabe attended to deliver a presentation on “The Unbelievable Benefits of Cloud Computing in Education,” which was of great interest to the collective audience of educators and teachers.  Willie’s presentation also demonstrated how the Oracle Academy teaching resources can support learning and teaching in a cloud environment.
