Figure 2 shows something I wish I’d seen in college – you are always learning

Learning is not a one-time event.

You can use handbooks to look up specific things or freshen knowledge

There is some e-learning available along with online knowledge products

Live access is for exercises to complement the course; but Live Access purpose is to have “exact same” environment as in SAP training

Question & Answer

Q For India, do they still need to go through the evaluation process from SAP Education India for appearing a Certification Exam?

A: SAP Learning Hub subscription satisfies the training requirements for Certification in India

Q: I can imagine the Learning rooms getting populated with collective knowledge over time. Are there plans to give everyone read-only access to the content, maybe via SCN? If not, we might get Learning Hub content silos next to the open-for-all SCN forums.

A: There currently are no plans to provide read-only access to learning rooms. Learning rooms (access) are part of Learning Hub subscription. The concern on content silo’ing has been passed onto the relevant SAP teams already as feedback already.

Q: How is OpenSAP academy related to SAP Learning Hub? ( I am currently doing BI-Apps on Hana and BW on HANA courses and they are great)

A: Complementary mostly, learning hub is more tailored towards guidance for SAP certification

Q: : Re: live system access: Are there any plans to share the system content (for ABAP systems this would be packages like BC400 ABAP fundamentals, etc) i.e. exercises and solutions, to systems provided by the Cloud Appliance Library, or ordinary customer ystems, as add-ons? This would promote adoptionfor the developers among us who need system access to really learn stuff.

A: SAP CAL has many images available, including IDES like systems which have predefined content, even RDS combinations (ERP, Fiori, …) on HANA for example which are available for deployment on cloud or can be ordered through SAP. Those are still often different images (with different objectives) versus what Live Access is meant for (exercise preparation requirements sometimes, specific information or environment). So as far as I’m aware, no such plan exists. I’m not sure how much I can disclose in terms of information towards the future. but changes are planned for Live Access.

      Thanks Tammy for this summary. I had it in my calendar to wake up and dial in but <<insert poor excuse>>

      Was there a live recording for playback?

      Q For India, do they still need to go through the evaluation process from SAP Education India for appearing a Certification Exam?

      A: Learning room satisfies this

      Thanks SAP for clarifying India's eligibility requirement for Certification via Learning Hub Subscription. I'm sure quite a few members over in the Career Center space will love this news!
