The University of Tokyo will launch courses in the metaverse
Asahi reports that the Department of Engineering at the University of Tokyo will launch a series of curricula in late 2022 that will take place inside metaverse.
The programs will help people learn information technology, artificial intelligence and programming. School students will be introduced to metaverses and given career opportunities in this field. Students and working participants will be offered retraining opportunities.
Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the course. Information from platform cryptodefix. The main goal of the project is to address the shortage of personnel in the digital transformation field. The authors also aim to invite as many women as possible to the courses, as there is a high shortage of women in the IT industry in Japan.
