Curriculum

Do you want to include NoSQL database education in your curriculum?

We can help! Our expert team can provide a starter curriculum and assistance along the way to help students learn and academic staff teach NoSQL database technology. To support the academic community we offer the following:

  • Curriculum Starter Kit: Materials that you can “plug and play” or customize to fit your needs.
  • Hands-On Labs: Environments which you can give to students to use right out of the box. Necessary software and license, sample data, hands-on assignments and projects are included.
  • Workshops and guest lectures: Experts available for guest speaker spots both virtually or in person.

Our curriculum fits well in both Engineering / Computer Science programs and technically focused Business programs such as Management Information Systems.

Data Warehousing and Analytics

An Operational Data Hub (ODH) built on modern NoSQL technology is an alternative to a traditional data warehouse. Often, existing data warehouses end up being just another data silo that gets integrated into the ODH that a business will then use to power both transactional and analytical applications.

This curriculum is designed to complement traditional data warehouse coverage by also teaching students how to integrate data using agile and efficient NoSQL technology as an alternative to traditional approaches that require defining an ever-changing schema and writing ETL.

Intro to Databases

Most technical programs at the University level offer an introductory database course. And traditionally that curriculum teaches traditional relational database technology. And while learning relational technology is good, it alone does not provide students with a complete view of modern databases that businesses use.

This curriculum is designed to complement that coverage, enabling students to learn both relational and NoSQL database concepts so they leave with a well rounded, modern understanding of databases.

Lab Instructions

We all know that learning new concepts is best reinforced with real-world hands-on examples. We make it easy for Universities to provide students with a lab environment to use in order to complete assignments and projects. Lab environments contain everything a student and professor will need to use the curriculum: software, licenses, sample data, course materials and examples.

Local Lab Environment

We can provide local virtual machines that run on free software and contain everything a student will need to complete the curriculum. These virtual machines can also be deployed in a computer lab setting in order to meet the needs of students who may not have their own computer.

Local virtual machines have the advantage of providing students with a sandbox that they can take with them and use even after the course is complete. A local virtual machine can also be used even if the student doesn’t have a fast internet connection.

Hosted Lab Environment

An alternative to a local virtual machine is a hosted environment. With this option the virtual machines are hosted and accessed through a web browser, which means the only prerequisite requirement on the students local machine is a modern web browser and an internet connection.

Hosted virtual machines have the advantage of allowing the student to access their lab environment from different computers as they complete the course, including computers in University computer labs. The disadvantage of the hosted approach is that a fast internet connection is always required and when the course completes, the environment will go away.
