Free webcasts held on Digital and IT Skills: Knowing and Understanding the Basics of Database

In conjunction with collaborators, Oracle Academy in Italy kicked off a project for the amplification of digital and IT skills on November 7, 2023. The collaboration project aims to take over 1,200 educators and their students on a journey to discover the database, an infrastructure for managing vast amounts of data and information.

Oracle Academy is proud to support this project by providing Oracle Academy free curriculum and associated member benefits such as the Oracle Academy Cloud program and learning resources to the participating member universities.


Knowing and understanding what a databse is, how it works, and how to use it, is part of the indispensable IT knowledge and skills that expand and enrich student learning and is of great value in the world of work and computer skills. Computer and technology knowledge and skills are key to the world of work, which is why Oracle Academy experts are supporting Educazione Digitale to work with educators at two free webinars that will explore the topic of "The Database".

The workshops will explore management of sets of information or data stored electronically in a computer system, the structure behind this and the logic used for creation. In addition, the attendees with be briefed on the importance of databases in the age of the internet, to meet the need for greater speed and processing of large amounts of data and the job roles related to them.

During the first meeting, the foundations of database are introduced, from its development history to the most pressing challenges it faces in the present and future, delving into concepts such as SQL language, database types, and database management systems.

The next session, on January 25, 2024, will cover “Digital and IT Skills 2.0: Developing Database-Based Web Applications.” In this session with experts from Oracle Academy, attendees will gain insight into the fundamentals of web application development with Oracle APEX.

These events will provide educators and students with fundamental knowledge introducing them to the world of digital skills. Such skills are in demand across all industry sectors. Workshops also will cover soft skills such as proactivity, problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and logical reasoning.

Developing database skills means gaining position in an increasingly competitive and cutting-edge job market, where technical-scientific knowledge and skills are in high demand. Those in Italy who are interested may register here.
