Two of the key factors for successful and productive simulation-based
hardware verification are an
efficient verification language and an
As the global design and verification eco system is scattered and evolving rapidly,
it is hard to keep all engineers trained.
We are looking at MOOCs,
Massive Open Online Courses, as popularized by organizations
Khan Academy, to address the need for more accessible and globalized training.
To determine how MOOCs can be applied to verification training, we are partnering with
one of the premier players in this field.
MOOCs require a very different approach. Repurposing traditional, in-person training is not sufficient.
The challenge is to keep students engaged while keeping the material at a high standard.
This is not trivial, as online users can be distracted very easily and the online drop out
rate is even higher than in the real world.
Our class on Udacity is called:
Functional Hardware Verification: How to verify chips and eliminate bugs.
