Our education team and our academia team have collaborated to produce a new free course: ‘Introduction to Modern Databases’. This course is designed for educators to use with learners who are new to MongoDB and the document model, whether in colleges and universities, technical bootcamps, or other educational programs .

This course provides an introduction to modern general-purpose databases, with MongoDB used as the example database system. The course contrasts relational and non-relational databases, defines MongoDB's architecture, and describes data modeling in MongoDB. Students will learn best practices for modeling and querying data, as well as how to use features like aggregations and transactions that make it easier to build efficient scalable applications with MongoDB. Students will also learn about the drivers, connectors, and wider ecosystem of tooling in the MongoDB data platform. Quiz questions and hands-on exercises are included.
