JEDI is a collaborative project that aims to make high-quality, industry-endorsed IT and Computer Science course material available for free. The course materials are developed with inputs from industry and conforms to international education standards. JEDI materials and resources are developed, used and enhanced in a collaborative environment using java.net.

JEDI member institutions immediately gain access to a whole suite of resources to enhance teaching and learning experience:

A: Currently, JEDI only caters to the schools with BSCS and/or BSIT programs. However, since JEDI is designed as an open source program, they may download the courseware through the Internet. The schools are free to use this courseware for their own programs but they would not be able to access some of the other JEDI benefits like the helpdesk, which are exclusive to JEDI members.
A: Teachers will undergo the JEDI T3 where the concepts on the revised course curriculum will be discussed. This training aims to: Allow teachers to conduct/teach course effectively; Gain new teaching techniques/concepts to develop a better teaching strategy; and Integrate Java effectively in the curricula. JEDI T3 training venue depends on the JEDI Team’s schedule but are held near your city or region.

The inputs from the members of the Industry will ensure that the schools will teach the skills they require for hiring. The result, therefore, is a courseware that meets their quality standards.
A: The schools have to give Oracle feedback on the project through assessment forms, which Oracle will provide, and statistical data. Schools are expected to encourage their teachers to contribute back to the JEDI program. Remember that this is an OPEN project – a two-way collaboration among teachers and not a one-way thing
