Students in the course learn about the technology behind the industry and get hands-on experience with Web3 tools.
Many people find it hard to get into the crypto and Web3 space because they don’t have enough education. This is especially true when it comes to understanding the technology that makes these innovations possible.

On Feb. 8, the New York University School of Professional Studies (NYU SPS), which is one of the schools that make up New York University, announced a partnership with the Near Foundation to launch a new “Web3 Learning Workshop” for students, faculty, and industry partners.
The NYU SPS Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport created the course. One focus of the workshop will be on how Web3 and blockchain technologies and the sports industry can work together.
Dean of NYU SPS Angie Kamath said that universities have a duty to help their communities be “success in every industry.”
“Web3 and blockchain technologies will have a large role to play, not just in the sports industry but in every industry that touches our lives.”
The course covers the basics of blockchain and digital assets, as well as their applications in the sports industry. Michael Kelly, co-founder of the Near ecosystem, will instruct the course and provide participants with hands-on experience.
In addition, NYU SPS participants will be eligible for new nonfungible token awards through a decentralized application on the Near platform. While NYU is not the first school in the United States to launch a program on blockchain and Web3 technologies, it is one of the country’s leading universities.
Recently, educators in Australia issued a statement asserting that there is a global shortage of “qualified people” with education in the Web3 business.
