The Qlik Academic Program kicks off it's peak period in EMEA with two sessions.
Now that we are into October we are starting the new academic year by introducing students to the power of Qlik Sense! Today we ran a hands on Qlik Sense workshop with the University of Liverpool. 120 students learnt all about how to create their first application in Qlik Sense, using the free tenant given to them as part of the Academic Program. This was a 3 hours hands on session for students studying a Masters in Business Analytics and Big Data. During this session students got to grips with using the Insight Adviser, loading and connecting data in the data manager, creating measures and using the storytelling function in Qlik Sense.
Straight after our session with the University of Liverpool we gave guest lecture to 30 students at Anglia Ruskin University studying the ARUCPD: Business Analytics and Data Visualizations with Qlik. This is an optional course that enables students to upskill in data analytics alongside their courses. We gave them an intro to Qlik, a tour of all the resources they get access to as part of the Academic Program and finally we went through a 30 minute in depth demo of Qlik Sense so that the students could get a taste of what to expect when they get started.
