“What did you learn today?”
I still remember being asked that by my parents every day after school. And often, with typical teenage angst, my response was “nothing”. How sad would that be if it were actually true?
Whether still in grade school or deep into your career, each day brings the opportunity to continue to learn and develop our skillsets. But today, I find the challenge not to be a lack of desire, but a lack of time. Well, my team and I are working to make it easier. At MarkLogic University, our goal is to foster an ecosystem that supports continuous learning – from the time you’re first introduced to MarkLogic technology and continuing through certification and beyond. We’re committed to creating a steady stream of fresh, hands-on content, and the tools (like the latest version of our mobile app, MLU 2.0 ) to make it even easier to access.
But video learning does present some challenges, particularly on mobile devices:
Through purposeful instructional design and use of our mobile app we’re working to eliminate those barriers to learning. Videos can be streamed or downloaded locally for offline viewing. Tutorials are produced with mobile in mind (let’s zoom in on that code sample, please). And most importantly, tutorials are designed to have hands-on components, with code and examples available to you through the MarkLogic University Github site.
The latest version of our mobile app (powered by MarkLogic), is now available for iOS and Android. And there are several cool new features. First, we added push notifications. This enables you to be alerted when new content has been published, making it easy for you to come back to the app and learn about all the latest and greatest features. Next, we created a quiz game. This is a valuable tool for preparing to take the MarkLogic certification written exam or just to have some fun and test your knowledge of MarkLogic technology. And finally, we’re adding On Demand training content to the app in a variety of languages to better support a fast-paced, global workforce.
Today is a great day to learn something new – make it easy with the MarkLogic University mobile app.
