TAMUC Gives Faculty Access to Powerful Tools with New Oracle Academy Partnership

Faculty at Texas A&M University-Commerce now have free access to a suite of powerful tools thanks to a recent partnership between the university and Oracle Academy. Programs for use include cloud technologies, software, support and professional certification resources. The Oracle Academy touts itself as a platform for “advanc(ing) computing education around the world to increase knowledge, innovation, skills development, and diversity in technology fields.” The partnership is similar to the university’s inclusion in the SAP University Alliance, which allows A&M-Commerce faculty to embed appropriate SAP transactions within selected courses. As of the end of Fall 2020, A&M-Commerce had awarded 11 SAP UA Student Recognition Awards to students for completing three or more courses, and has 511 students who have taken at least one SAP course. A recent graduate went so far as to receive certification as an SAP application developer. Interested faculty can learn more about Oracle Academy and sign up for free at the academy website.
