Innovative Digital Trends

About the course

Nowadays we keep hearing about all of these new trends like lean, artificial intelligence, internet of things, cloud, machine learning, robotics and virtual reality. As humans, we’re struggling with the overwhelming amount of new technologies we’re presented with.

What are the new technologies, how can you make use of them and most of all: how will it affect you, your daily life and your work?

Knowing about new technologies and their developments is not something that is just meant for the IT department anymore. Whether you’re a consultant, marketeer or an accountant you need to use the latest tools and technologies to keep up . With the MOOC ‘Innovative Digital Trends’ we aim to make this complex matter easy to understand for anyone.

How the MOOC work?

The MOOC starts on November 6th and will have has a total duration of four weeks. During these weeks we will cover several themes regarding innovative digital trends. We will do this by sharing video’s, blogs, readings, etc. with you. At the end of each topic we will challenge you with a number of questions and statements.

Parallel to this, a discussion platform will be created where you can share thoughts, ideas and content with the other participants. The idea is that you don’t just learn from us, but also from each other.

The MOOC is self-paced. You decide when and where you want to take the course, within the four week period.

What are the levels?

Week 1: What is innovation and how do you innovate?

This block looks at how digital innovation can be embraced and some of the methods and approaches to make innovations works for you.

Week 2: How to manage your journey to the cloud
Cloud computing is everywhere and it’s quickly becoming the new normal. But what is the cloud? Where is the cloud? How do you go to the cloud? These are all questions you’ve probably heard or even asked yourself. So, if you want to get an introduction into ‘all-things-Cloud’ and you’re looking for answers to your questions then join us in this part of the MOOC.

Week 3: Automation/Robotics
Processes, robots, RPA, Cognitive Tooling… What is Automation? Possibly an ungrasping and elusive term but what if it means that robots will take over your work? That many services can be 24 hr available? That you as a customer will only receive relevant information? Automation has a different meaning for everyone, so sign up for the MOOC and join the discussion on automation.

Week 4: Changing the world with Artificial Intelligence
You’ve probably heard about Artificial Intelligence, or AI. You’ve heard it’s how we’re going to save the world. Or take over the world. But what else have you heard? Do you know how it’s changing the world right now as we speak? Register for the MOOC and we’ll tell you all about Artificial Intelligence. We will discuss topics like deep learning, natural language processing and visual recognition to answer the questions ‘What is AI’ and more importantly ‘what can you do with it’?
