These three courses have been developed and published already on the official NetAcad platform under the group of the IoT Fundamental courses: www.netacad.com/courses/iot-fundamentals/
The IoT Fundamentals courses are focused on the main stages of digitization: 1) identifying and communicating a business or social problem; 2) designing and connecting IoT devices to interact with the physical world; 3) gathering, managing, and visualizing the data generated; and 4) presenting your IoT solution to a panel of experts.
The first course, Connecting Things, focuses on identifying, designing, prototyping, and presenting an IoT solution that securely solves a current business or social problem.
The Big Data & Analytics course builds on Connecting Things, teaching you how to collect, store, and visualize data obtained from IoT sensors. This course will develop the ability to extract data and use data analytics to gain insights, an extremely valuable skill to employers.
In the hackathon, the student will apply the multidisciplinary skills learned in Connecting Things and Big Data & Analytics to identify and solve a real-world problem.
All three courses have been released at the end of Q3 March/April 2017.
