Sohar University Joins Red Hat Academy

December 12, 2019:    Sohar University, today announced that it has collaborated with Red Hat to create the Sohar University Red Hat Academy. Red Hat Academy is an open source, web-deployed and web- managed education program that is designed to provide turnkey curriculum materials to academic institutions to start and sustain an open source and Linux curriculum program.

In academic year 2018-19, FCIT embedded the Red Hat curriculum (Linux-related content) in the lab-sessions of the “Operating System” course, which provides practical experience with performance-based and hands-on labs for helping students to get skilled up and enhance their career prospects. The program also provides students with highly marketable skills that are in demand in the industry.

For more than a decade, Red Hat Academy has supplied high schools and institutions of higher education worldwide that have the required technology and support environments, with hands-on instruction, curriculum, labs, performance-based testing, and instructor support. Red Hat Academy’s web-based curriculum helps create competencies through hands-on, performance-based learning and testing.

They providing us with hands-on and enterprise-ready open source curriculum that contains many real-world cases from different enterprise implementations.
