1095 HybridBadge Qualify for Micro-Credential 1.5 CEUs

This course is hybrid, meaning it will include a mixture of online work and live webinars.

Course Overview:

This is a hybrid 15-hour course. Learners will meet synchronously via Zoom and will have asynchronous activities. Learners will have eight weeks upon registration to complete the five modules which will require the students to complete at least three hours of work each week. At the end of the course, students will earn a badge for course completion. Learners will earn 1.5 continuing education units (CEUs).

Course Description:

Artificial intelligence (AI) is used to solve problems in research and industry. This course provides students with an understanding of and practical hands-on experience building and using AI systems. Students will obtain the skills and knowledge they need to use AI to solve real-world agricultural and life sciences problems.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
