Today, the IoT ONE ACADEMY has published the IOTA courses for managers in English language in close cooperation with the IOTA Foundation headquartered in Berlin.
These courses are specifically designed for managers, consultants, strategy managers, c-level managers, and decision-makers with no technical or developer background. The content has been carefully conducted between IoT ONE ACADEMY and IOTA Foundation and contains training that helps the participants to understand:
- the advantages and benefits of IOTA for their future M2M & Data-Driven business
- a non-tech full introduction into Distributed Ledger Technology and IOTA from an eagle view
- how they can develop disruptive impulses for existing or future business
- the many existing use-cases of IOTA
- how they develop their own IOTA project vision and idea
The IOTA Managers Course is aimed at beginners in the field of Blockchain for industrial purposes, who are interested in understanding how DLTs work.
The course covers the premise of “data is the new oil” in detail, what opportunities are now possible, and aims to provide deeper insights and inspiration for digitally transforming industries by using DLT. The course includes information on the current early development status and progress of all DLTs as well as IOTA specifically.
The course helps managers to understand the background of IOTA up to today and the insights from IOTA Insiders about projects and future plans (e.g. Chrysalis and Coordicide). It enables the trainees to gain profound knowledge about the IOTA Foundation and the strategy behind the technology development and its components (no technical expertise is needed). The content provides detailed information about existing use-cases and possibilities for new use-cases as well as interesting areas to develop new business models. One of many important aspects to learn more about is DLT as a trust layer for a decentralized data-based economy and IOTA’s unique position to connect billions of people and machines through a feeless, decentralized protocol.
Three different pieces of training can be purchased
- App-only (no support)
- App with premium support of instructors (to address participant’s questions while learning)
- A 2-days Seminar/Video conference with app + premium support
Courses start daily while the digital training via app is self-paced and asynchronous. Participants can purchase their course via Eventbrite and will receive a login via e-mail. A smart device or web browser can be used to download the app. Participants can set their own timing and learn whenever they want. The recommended time to finish the course (while parallel working in a normal job setting) is six weeks with an approximately learning time of 3-4 hours/weekly plus the time for the homework tasks.
Participants who booked a training with Premium Messenger or higher can ask questions via the In-App messenger that are quickly answered by IOTA experienced instructors (developers or management trainers) during workdays (weekends and evening responses will have slightly slower response times).
Homework tasks are included in the courses to strengthen the knowledge transfer following the principles of modern active learning. Participants are asked to use the homework to reflect on the course content and adapt it to their professional purposes. This process enables participants to complete the course with a fully developed idea or vision of how they can apply IOTA technology in a professional setting. All participants can save their tasks in the app for later usage. Participants who booked a training with Premium Messenger or higher also receive a review and approval from the instructors or may be asked to communicate about the outcome. However, homework tasks are voluntary and participants who are only interested in learning a new and exciting topic can pursue learning without taking part in interaction with instructors.
For the first IOTA project in the course, a structured explanation on how to set it up is also enhanced by recommendations from a renowned consulting company explaining the Business Canvas — as well as the modern Future Modelling Methodology to support the trainees.

Holger Köther, Director of Partnerships, IOTA Foundation: “We are happy to announce the publication of the IOTA COURSES FOR MANAGERS which is an excellent basis for decision-makers and managers for the development of their own IOTA projects. It helps managers understand the potential of IOTA in a short time. The IoT ONE ACADEMY has already successfully implemented the IOTA training courses for programmers in close cooperation with the IOTA Foundation — so we are all the more pleased that there is now a course for non-technicians available to help decision-makers and managers understand the potential of IOTA as an open-source, secure and scalable infrastructure.”
Arne Flick, co-founder & director of the IoT ONE ACADEMY: “The IOTA COURSE FOR MANAGERS is a very good opportunity to learn everything worth knowing about the advantages and possibilities of the IOTA technology as well as the far-reaching plans of the IOTA Foundation and how that can be beneficial for companies. As a modern digital learning academy, we attach great importance to the participants' understanding of the disruptive power of IOTA and how they can use IOTA in their company. We amplify the active learning transfer throughout the unique Learning App technology that helps to strengthen the learning success as well as by the learning content that has been co-authored by the IOTA Foundation and the IoT ONE ACADEMY.”
