In December 2019, Cloudinary launched its customer education platform, the Cloudinary Academy, replete with courses taught by the company’s experts on developer-oriented products and digital asset management (DAM) solution. The courses comprise interactive lessons and hands-on assignments, a proven way of familiarizing the audience with the course material and illustrating it with live examples.
I’m an instructional designer on Cloudinary’s Solutions and Training team. As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in March, like other global organizations, we pivoted to set up virtual courses. As much as we looked forward to resuming in-person classes in the future, we switched gear to focus on the virtual way of learning.
When I first learned about Cloudinary back in 2013, it literally seemed like web-development magic. You upload your images and videos to it and, in short order, Cloudinary has served them in the most optimal formats and quality for all browsers and devices. It blew me away. No doubt some of you have felt the same way.
