Our program has been incredibly popular among US schools and colleges, and today marks an important step forward as we expand internationally,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We are proud to work with RMIT and many other schools around the world who share our vision of empowering students with tools that can help them change the world.”
This program has been started at RMIT University which is the largest higher education institute in Australia. As per the report, the University is also offering the free scholarship to the teachers who want to learn this program.
