In addition to the scholarships, Dataquest and Omdena will jointly build a personalized learning path for Omdena collaborators. Core to the Dataquest mission is providing personalized learning paths that get learners to positive, real-world career outcomes. This mission-aligned partnership will work to provide a personalized and skills-driven learning path involving the following:

  • Recommending suitable courses
  • Building proficiency in data science through exploring real-world data
  • Prioritizing in-demand data skills

“Data skills can help transform lives. Building data projects and solving real-world problems helped me go from working at a factory to working in online education. Through this partnership, I’m excited to help hundreds of learners take the same journey that I did,” said Vik Paruchuri, Dataquest President and Founder.
