Posted on May 23 2014 | IBNS
New Delhi, May 22 : SAP AG on Thursday announced a cloud-based offering designed for students to incorporate the study of SAP solutions into university coursework.
The student edition of SAP Learning Hub offers a comprehensive library of electronic content that universities can provide to students for self-study covering close to 150 SAP solutions. It also includes access to e-learning courses, handbooks and other training materials from the SAP Education organization tailored for students' needs.
Through the student edition of SAP Learning Hub, students can prepare for future employment on their chosen career path or prepare for SAP certification exams. This is the latest edition of the new and expanded version of the cloud-based SAP Learning Hub site announced earlier this year.
Universities can purchase access to the student edition of SAP Learning Hub on behalf of students who then receive access to the site. With a wide range of high-quality content and optional live access to training systems from SAP, students will be set up to train when and where they choose.
Students can also access social learning rooms to collaborate with peers and interact with SAP subject-matter experts. The student edition is offered at a lower entry price point for the academic sector, with optional access to live SAP training systems for select courses.
"The generation currently enrolled in universities around the world represents the workforce of the future and both SAP and our ecosystem stand to gain from this impending influx of talent," said Markus Schwarz, senior vice president and global head of SAP Education.
"With social collaboration features and interactive learning rooms, the student edition of SAP Learning Hub meets the learning needs and habits of today's students and gives them a firm foundation for pursuing an SAP certification, thereby opening up additional career paths," Schwarz said.
"With the student edition of SAP Learning Hub, we can bring young people a blended learning approach that expands their access to SAP innovations," said Ann Rosenberg, vice president and global head of SAP University Alliances. "In a move to simplify access for the more than 1,500 universities worldwide that are SAP University Alliances program members, we aim to make SAP Learning Hub the main entry point for all SAP University Alliances curricula," Schwarz added.
SAP University Alliances and SAP Education will be on-site at SAPPHIRE NOW, being held June 3-5, 2014, in Orlando Fla.
