IBM blockchain course gained a much better response than what everyone anticipated during its announcement. Indian students have shown a keen interest in the new age technology and have already begun learning it with the free course offered by the technology giant IBM. This is one of its first kinds of an initiative taken by any company to spread knowledge and awareness about a technology. It was announced in June this year and the inaugural edition was titled as “Blockchain Architecture Design and Use Cases”.
According to The Next Web, it is stated that IBM blockchain course began with massive inquiries which later turned into more than 21,000 registrations. In addition to this, it is even mentioned that the course has become extremely popular within a short span of time and can barely keep up with the demand.
The course participants were informed by an email today by the company that the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) has been facing a backlog of registrations which is probably due to the unexpected rise in the number of inquiries. The IBM blockchain course backend team is already working on the capacity of the platform to approve the free credits to the participants of this program. The registrants have been advised to use a non-Gmail address and work e-mail.
