Australian University Presents Country’s First Open Blockchain Course

The very first online short course on blockchain technology in Australia is now being offered at the public research university, RMIT.

The rise of blockchain as a game-changing technology has urged the Melbourne-based university to offer the course to the sector. The program lasting 8 weeks is entitled ‘Developing Blockchain Strategy’ and will start on March 19. The curriculum is a result of the collaboration by the RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub and other industry experts including Asian FinTech hub Stone & Chalk, and services giant, Accenture.

The entry-level program will cost AUD $1,500 and is available to all entrants, students and other individuals interested in learning how to adapt and apply blockchain technology all over other industries.

The course will reportedly be “as practical as possible” according to RMIT. This will be made possible by connecting participants with the actual blockchain community. “We’ve built this course with companies that understand blockchain. We’ll start with the blockchain fundamentals, then use them to develop real-world business strategies,” the Melbourne public university added. The main goal of the course is to educate individuals about this major technological innovation so they will be able to adapt their strategy to meet the opportunities tied to revolutionary inventions such as this.

After the course is completed, participants will earn one full credit unit (12 credit points) into select RMIT business programs at a bachelor or master level, to be recognized by future employers.
