Hello MongoDB Learners! I’m Mary Alati, Growth Manager for the Education team here at MongoDB. As we grapple with the enormous scale and human impact of the current global crisis, MongoDB is determined to continue to support our community during these difficult times. Thus, to better support the needs of our community, the Education team is pleased to announce several major changes to MongoDB University.
Before I dive into those changes, for those of you who aren’t familiar with MongoDB University, our mission is to empower developers on the MongoDB platform through education. We offer completely free, online courses led by Curriculum Engineers for any learner - whether you’re just getting started or already familiar with MongoDB.
Taking into account the reality of evolving working and learning styles, coupled with input from our community, we’ve introduced several updates with the goal of making it easier than ever to learn online with MongoDB University:
- You will now have access to the entirety of a course’s curriculum, including chapters and exercises, from the moment you enroll. While we recommend that you go through the content sequentially, this change will allow you to access specific content within a course at any time.
- Chapters no longer have weekly deadlines. The removal of chapter deadlines enhances your ability as a user to learn at your own pace.
- You’ll now have two months to complete a course upon enrollment
These changes have been applied to all our course offerings. We hope these changes will help you learn MongoDB with even more flexibility.
As we continue to work to make learning MongoDB easier than ever, we’d love to hear from you. If you have feedback, suggestions, or questions you can connect with our team over email or on our new community forums.
