Cisco says its “largest and most enduring corporate social responsibility program”, the Cisco Networking Academy, has enrolled its 1 millionth concurrent student for the first time. In partnership with educational institutions, government administrations and community-based organizations around the world, the academy delivers information and communications technology (ICT) education through in-classroom learning combined with cloud-based curricula and tools.
The Networking Academy began in 1997 with 64 schools and has grown to
become one of the “world’s largest classrooms” with 10,000 academies in
165 countries, and nearly four million students having participated in
the program to date. The academy teaches students how to design, build,
troubleshoot and secure computer networks.
Cisco is celebrating the milestone by offering Networking Academy
students and alumni the chance to show the benefits of this unique
classroom experience through a video contest titled “Why is The Cisco
Networking Academy Classroom Like No Other?”.
