What is the difference between an Online Bootcamp Program, a Short Course and a Professional Certificate Program?
An Online Bootcamp Program is an intensive and accelerated learning program made up of a collection of self-paced eLearning components and live online classes that students are required to attend.
The Online Bootcamp program curriculum contain a combination of specifically chosen courses and career-critical skills that are aligned to a job role.
A Professional Certificate Program is quite similar to an Online Bootcamp Program but do not involve self-paced online learning. The Professional Certificate Program course structures are cohort based. This means students are required to complete training in their specific chosen schedule enabling students to focus and practice skills they have learned in class from start to finish.
A Short Course on the other hand are shorter courses that is designed to target developing a specific skill set or topic. They generally are much quicker to complete than Bootcamp Programs.
What is data analytics?
Data analytics is the practice of collecting, analysing, and interpreting raw data for research or business purposes. Professionals in this field often try to answer four main questions:
- "What happened?", also known as "descriptive analytics"
- "Why did that happen?", also known as "diagnostic analytics"
- "What might happen next?", also known as "predictive analytics"; and
- "What should be done next?", also known as "prescriptive analytics".
Most processes in the data analytics field are now automated through the use of software tools and algorithms. This allows professionals to more easily mine and organise the raw datasets found online - an important advantage in a landscape where online information faces exponential growth. Their work allows organisations to make better business decisions; tap into new or emerging markets; and improve their overall operational strategy.
