Author(s): Dang Thai Doan

Owing to the outbreak of COVID-19, the educational system worldwide has been significantly impacted; it prompted educational institutions' closure, which adversely affected the academic calendar around the globe. Internet learning has emerged as the nearest alternative for off-line learning in the absence of conventional classroom instruction and one-to-one contact. In recent years, the technology workforce education structure has changed significantly, with the tech industry providing certification-based academic programs to train potential engineering workers using online learning. These programs typically work with a university to offer various types of learners specialized skill training. In this study, we briefly highlight the AWS Academy, which combines academic theories of cloud computing with their applications as acquired in the industry to enable students to have theoretical and practical skills that will prepare them for cloud computing careers. This study attempts to examine the relationship between academic and industry collaboration. Finally, we address some key measures that could improve a successful relationship between the university and industry, particularly in developing countries to cloud computing in education.
