Apple Co-Founder's Next Venture Could Revolutionize Education

14 Octobre 2017

Steve Wozniak is well known within tech circles for two things: being the co-founder of Apple Computers and being an approachable and super awesome human person. With the creation of the Apple I, and the more advanced Apple II model, Wozniak helped to revolutionize the tech computing industry and pave the way for innovations like laptops, smartphones, and high-tech gaming systems. Now, the Apple co-founder wants to see what he can do in education. It's unclear whether courses will be offered for free, or whether Woz U plans on charging for any element of the online education platform. Over time, Wozniak hopes to expand the initiative to include as many as 30 physical locations around the world and courses on everything from software engineering and information technology to mobile app development and cybersecurity, among others.

The startup venture is part of Southern Careers Institute (SCI), a private for-profit school based in Austin, Texas.

In an effort to meet the demands of today's students, Woz U will be available 24/7, with online teachers, mentors and career services personnel - all grounded in a video-based curriculum.

"Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt", Wozniak said in a prepared statement.

In a statement, the line said: "Carnival Fascination will return to year-round service from San Juan beginning February 18, 2018". As a result, Carnival Fascination's cruises from October 15 through January 28 are canceled.

"People often are afraid to choose a technology-based career because they think they can't do it", Mr. Wozniak said in a statement. The lifelong techie said he knows they can and he wants to show them how.

A Woz U app is created to help match potential students with the tech career best suited for them.

Inspired by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, Woz U provides a personalized approach to coding and tech education created to get you through the curriculum faster so that you can get into the workforce quicker, and start changing the world. "This education is for the masses; it will elevate standards of higher education and what you can expect from it, meaning that you too can be an innovator with action and hard work".
