As part of the next generation Adobe Education Exchange, teachers and students will be able to use Adobe Analytics for free and access the course curriculum with hands-on activities.

The success of the event piqued the interest of higher education teachers, who wanted to include elements of the challenge in their curriculum.
Professors from institutions such as the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Utah and the University of Michigan have partnered with Adobe to develop the program, helping to shape the program to ensure its implementation. easy in any college or university.
