One of the questions I have been asked often since we launched IndicThreads Education is – Why have techies like us launched courses on Internet For Business Development, Internet Entrepreneurship & IT Security & Compliance? With our qualifications and background, courses on programming & software development topics were felt to be the more natural extension for IndicThreads. So why have we ventured into Business + Technology instead? Continue reading “Internet For Business Development – Why?”
While creating IndicThreads Education courses, we studied several business, technology & management courses across many reputed institutions. We were shocked (& pleased as they keep our biz relevant) to see that almost all these courses were at least 5-10 years behind time.
Most were driven by ‘academics’ who have been teaching pretty much the same stuff for ages. With due respects to these courses & people, we have ventured to create courses for 2010. We teach topics that are relevant today and the teaching comes from people from the industry who have been there & done that and not just read about it.
While traditional courses are designed to last for decades, our courses are designed to become outdated in a year. Honestly, in today’s rapidly changing social & business space, even 1 year seems like a long time to be teaching the same thing.
A recent survey by ASSOCHAM’s Social Development Foundation in India claims that close to 12.5% of productivity of human resources in the corporate sector is misappropriated each day since a vast majority of them while away their time accessing social networking sites during the office hours.
IndicThreads Education made a splash at the recently concluded 4th IndicThreads.com Conference On Java. IndicThreads Education posters featured at the conference and we got dozens of queries & inputs. Courses on social media & technology & IT security were felt to be the need of the hour for new age businesses. We agree! 🙂
