Free MOOCs for entrepreneurs launched

NTU Singapore and Web3 developer education platform HackQuest are collaborating to launch a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to help entrepreneurs develop projects and business ideas on Web3, the third iteration of the Internet.

Also known as Web 3.0, Web3 is the idea of a new, decentralised Internet built on blockchain technology. Focusing on user ownership and empowerment, it presents many business and entrepreneurial opportunities for individuals with applied blockchain skills and community-focused mindsets.

Jointly developed by HackQuest and NTU Singapore’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship initiative (NTU I&E), the new MOOC will see participants learning from Web3 experts, entrepreneurs, academics and venture capitalists in real-time online sessions, unlike the usual MOOCs which are pre-recorded and taught by a single lecturer. The course will provide a comprehensive overview of the industry's pressing challenges and help them acquire the essential knowledge and skills for developing Web3 projects and business ideas.

The new MOOC launched its first session on 28 May and will have weekly online lessons until 24 Sep 2024, where there will be active question and answer sessions with the guest lecturers – another unique feature of the course.
