Metaverse is changing how people use the internet in general. With the metaverse and other Web 3.0 technologies, the internet has entered a whole new era. Both well-known companies and new ones are trying out new things in the digital world. Multibillion-dollar companies like Boeing, UPS, Samsung, PwC, NVIDIA, and others have already committed to this new technology. Not only businesses, but also famous people, athletes, and politicians seem to be in love with the metaverse.

Virtual programs that universities offer

According to a report from a local news source, The Asahi Shimbun, the University of Tokyo will start offering a variety of courses for a wide range of people, from junior high school students to people who are already working. The main goal of the courses will be to teach people how to use the metaverse. Instead of the university’s staff, the program will be run by the Todai faculty of Engineering and engineering-related graduate schools.

Todai made the program to deal with the lack of trained workers needed to handle digital transformation and to keep employees up to date on the latest technology. The school says that these programs are for both male and female students because “female students remain underrepresented in university engineering degrees.” Someone from the university was quoted as saying,

“Thanks to the metaverse, there could be a way for anyone, no matter their age, gender, socioeconomic status, or where they live, to learn about engineering and information science.”

The Metaverse program will give people more chances to learn new skills.

According to the article, students from other colleges will also be able to use the Todai metaverse to research possible engineering careers. Junior and senior high school students, as well as their parents, will be able to take online and in-person programs to try out college engineering classes.

Through the collaboration of businesses that do things like make products, the students will also be able to learn by doing. College students and people who are already working will be able to get new skills through this initiative. There will be online classes on things like the next generation of communication technologies, how to be an entrepreneur, and artificial intelligence. Certificates will be given to students who finish the courses with good grades.
