Especially with the events of COVID-19, the adaptability of education has shown that it can implement the study of relevant skills and job performance.

Google recently made a big announcement – the company is launching a selection of professional courses that will teach their students how to perform in a variety of high-demand jobs, and no previous experience is required to sign up for them.
