New, Free App Offers Seamless Experience Between Web and Mobile Coursework Plus Offline Viewing

NEW YORK, NY and PALO ALTO, CA – September 24, 2015 – MongoDB, the database for giant ideas, today announced the MongoDB University app for iOS, enabling professionals to take the popular online classes on the go. Now available for free in the App Store for iPhone and iPad, the app allows students to stream course videos, complete quizzes, and prepare for MongoDB certification exams. The MongoDB University iOS app also offers the ability to download course videos for offline viewing on the subway or in other environments where bandwidth is limited.

“The idea of the office is changing. Developers are working not only in well-connected central locations, but also while in transit – on trains, planes and buses – where connectivity is sometimes sporadic or expensive,” said Andrew Erlichson, Vice President of Engineering, MongoDB. “The availability of a MongoDB University mobile app enables developers to take courses and learn how to develop on MongoDB wherever they are.”

The MongoDB University app syncs with students’ existing MongoDB University accounts so that they may move seamlessly between the mobile experience and the web throughout the course. To facilitate preparation for MongoDB certification exams, the app also provides students with the ability to mark their favorite lesson videos and quizzes for later review.

MongoDB University hosts six massive online open courses (MOOCs) with offerings for both developers and DBAs. Courses consist of a sequence of chapters, each on a major MongoDB topic. Chapters are divided into a series of short lesson videos and quizzes. At the end of each chapter students complete several lab exercises to provide them with hands-on experience on the subject matter. At the conclusion of each course, students can optionally take certification exams to become MongoDB Certified Professionals.
