Oracle and Higher Ed Systems (HES) have partnered to provide online information technology (IT) courses to Australian universities.
The Learn-IT Online initiative will provide universities with access to more than 600 IT industry certification and professional development training courses, learner management software, flexible deployment options and ongoing support services.
The solution is customisable and offers flexible learning for the delivery of IT, PC, management, interpersonal and professional development skills training.
The offering will be tailored to the strategies and requirements of each university, including revenue generating opportunities, by allowing universities to charge for the provision of vendor-certified IT training at a university determined fee. The Australian Vice-Chancellors' Committee has endorsed the initiative.
HES has established a sector-wide business agreement with Oracle, which will allow universities to negotiate directly with the vendor. Participating universities can purchase Learn-IT Online products via an enterprise licence, an incremental licence or by individual licences.
