Predictive analytics courses you can take online this summer
New technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and big data are growing at an incredible rate. Because of this, data scientist jobs are increasingly in demand and will be long into the future, as companies struggle to keep up and make sense of all the data that can now be collected and stored through the development of cloud-based technologies. Employers are increasingly looking for employees who are well-versed in different components of data science, depending on the business. Forrester Research analyst Brandon Purcell said that organisations increasingly rely on insights driven by data. “Data scientists are crucial in turning the massive amount of data companies capture into action. They’ve always been in high demand, but until recently, only large enterprises and digital natives were willing to make the significant investment. Now, almost everyone is.” In eCommerce, predictive analytics is an essential tool that’s also growing at an unprecedented rate. Predictive analytics uses statistics, modeling, machine learning and data mining to make predictions for the future.

With some schools already announcing they will not reopen normally in the fall, and many others considering their options, educators are hoping to take advantage of the summer to improve on this spring’s sink-or-swim plunge into distance learning. Much of this reflection is likely to take place within the often siloed communities of practice in K-12 and higher education. One source for insights on how to proceed is the cross-pollination that takes place when educators working in separate spheres learn from one another. Insights that derive from dialog between K-12, higher education, and online-learning providers could well shape instructional practices for the better as students return to school, whether in a classroom or over Zoom.

Class Technologies Launches Class Cares To Support Students In Need

Class Technologies | August 27, 2021

Class Technologies Inc., the company enhancing virtual and hybrid classrooms by adding teaching and learning tools to Zoom, has launched Class Cares to support students and communities in need. "Class was founded from a desire to help people," said Michael Chasen, education software pioneer and Class co-founder and CEO. "Class Cares is a long term initiative that takes our team's desire to help and puts it into action through volunteering, donations, and partnerships to help students in need. We're committed to helping people in need around the world." As part of the initial Class Cares initiative, DC-based Class employees volunteered to pack hundreds of backpacks full of needed school supplies. Helping students go back to school, Class Cares is providing: 200+ backpacks filled by Class team members and brimming with supplies benefiting DC Public Schools (DCPS) students in southeast Washington, D.C. 150+ backpacks provided through a partnership with Kids in Need Foundation (KINF) to students at the American Indian Academy Charter School in Denver, Colorado. "These backpacks carry with them our belief that education is the key to a better future," said Natlee Green, Vice President of People at Class. "It is fitting that our first initiative helps kids right here in our hometown in Washington, D.C., where 25% of people live below poverty. At least 1 in 5 children in the US who live below the federal defined poverty line cannot afford back to school supplies. Class is here to help." Class Cares is a long-term corporate social responsibility program that aims to address education and community needs around the world. The company is committed to planning and participating in ongoing future Class Cares initiatives. The next project is planned for October, when Class Cares will partner with Habitat for Humanity to build a home to commemorate World Habitat Day. About Class Technologies Inc.
