Q: How is JEDI industry-relevant?

A: The curriculum for JEDI will be studied and reviewed by members from the Academe, Oracle, and the Industry itself. 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.

Q: What are the schools’ responsibilities to Oracle if they join JEDI?

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
