Google will soon start accepting learning certificates issued by its experts instead of traditional university degrees: is this the beginning of a revolution?
Important news at Google. The web giant has announced its intention to abolish traditional degrees, replacing them with its own certificates of learning. The news comes directly from the official blog of the world’s most used search engine. Learning or career certificates are documents issued by Google experts to those who successfully attend online courses lasting about six months. These are lessons given by experts who deal with very technical subjects with an extremely practical approach. The courses cover subjects such as web programming, big data analysis, user interface design, social network management and the creation of online advertising campaigns. In all these areas, Google has declared its intention to consider its courses as equivalent to the four-year degrees awarded by traditional American and European universities.
Why does Google want to abolish degrees?
But why does Google want to abolish university degrees? According to statements by Mountain View executives, the goal is twofold and very noble. Firstly, replacing traditional degrees with career certificates would mean widening the pool of students who can acquire a degree. The cost of Google’s courses has not yet been revealed, but it should be around 300 dollars: much less than the cost of a university tuition fee for four years. The second objective of Big G is to facilitate the entry of young people into the labour market by providing them with effectively useful and immediately spendable skills. Google’s courses will be held directly by the company’s employees and will offer all the information needed to start working immediately.
