EMC School has acquired Pittsburgh’s Zulama Inc., which provides computer science education solutions.
Zulama gives teachers training to teach programming, 3-D art, digital storytelling and game design, according to a news release. The program was developed with faculty from Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center.
Zulama courses, certifications and modules will immediately be able to be purchased as part of EMC’s computer literacy product line. Zulama’s products will ultimately be available through EMC’s learning environment Passport.
“Zulama’s comprehensive course offering, coupled with EMC’s current foundational computer skills curriculum, offers students the opportunity to develop the critical skills they need to build digital competency and successfully pursue their career goals,” said Mick Demakos, division president at EMC, in the news release.
