Earlier this year, in March, Microsoft launched a free, non-technical course, named 'AI Business School'. The series aims to empower business leaders by educating them on the use of AI. A number of 'learning paths' on Microsoft Learn concerning various fields with respect to AI have been made available since then. These include manufacturing, healthcare, and government, among other sectors.
Now, Microsoft has announced that a new learning path is being offered, and it is particularly aimed towards education. It is available for free on the Learn platform, exactly like other Business School modules.
AI Business School for Education targets industry leaders, business development managers, and students. A variety of techniques have been discussed to make educational environments more conducive to learning. These include support for inclusion and accessibility, innovations in ways of teaching and assessing, and utilization of AI tools to promote efficiency.
Incidentally, Microsoft recently brought some Dynamics 365 Business Central modules for Learn as well. The currently introduced educational modules will also offer insights from education leaders such as Professor Peter Zemsky, author Michelle Zimmerman, and David Kellerman from the University of New South Wales.
Yesterday, Microsoft announced a collaboration with multinational pharmaceutical firm Novartis to transform the field of medicine through AI. The tech giant clearly seems to hold artificial intelligence in high regard when it comes to its contemporary and future significance in various sectors.
