The INOAUG Oracle APEX User Confederation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing together IT professionals, business leaders and student communities interested in Oracle APEX no-code/low-code application development. INOAUG is actively involved in spreading the word about APEX technology by conducting regular monthly seminars/meetups as well as an annual conference involving Oracle APEX product managers, industry experts, educational institutions, and faculty members.

This year’s event, the 6th Annual Oracle APEX Conclave, was held in Chennai on 10 February, 2024. Oracle India was one of the event’s sponsors, and Oracle Academy held separate break-out sessions exclusively for Oracle Academy Institutional members. The 3.5-hour long sessions were crafted specifically for the educational audience.

The event witnessed an overwhelming response from Oracle Academy members and collaborators across India, with more than 50 faculty members and partner representatives participating in the event throughout the day. Almost 27 percent of the audience traveled from different states of the country, and about 25 percent of them from different parts of Tamil Nadu attended the event on Saturday.

Oracle Academy collaborators from Telangana included the Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK); Andhra Pradesh – Aditya Academy & Andhra Pradesh State Skill and Development Corporation (APSSDC); and Tamil Nadu – ICT Academy. Their representatives dignified the event with their energetic presence, engaged ideas, and immersive interactions. Mr. Shrikant Sinha, CEOI, TASK, and Mr. V. Srikanth, CEO, ICT Academy, shared their successful journeys with Oracle Academy and urged the faculty members to utilize the vast available Oracle Academy resources in their technology education teaching.

A few faculty members also shared their success stories and best practices for managing Oracle Academy resources. A uniquely crafted segment called “Candid Conversations” brought together interesting insights from Oracle Academy collaborators and institutional faculty members. The Member Hub hands-on workshop created significant and productive discussion forums that dealt with various aspects and features of the Oracle Academy Member Hub learning management system platform.

Overall, the educational audience thoroughly enjoyed the event and have vouched to be active and explore Oracle Academy resources for their own learning and teaching their students. Registering a stellar NPS of 86 for recommending Oracle Academy to their peers, 96 percent of event participants assured that over the next three months, they will be implementing and practicing what they learned during the Member Hub workshop.

 The event was led by Anuradha Sharma, Manager, Oracle Academy South Asia. Bharadwaj Asokan, Lead Program Manager, led operations, collaborations, and hosting of the event, ably supported by Vaishali Sharma, who handled registrations and operational assistance. Ranjini Sengupta and Neema M recruited faculty members for the event.

 We at Oracle Academy South Asia are pleased to have successfully organized this valuable event, and truly appreciate the participation and response from our faculty members and collaborators.
