VICKSBURG, Mississippi — Alcorn State University will locate an information technology program at its branch in Vicksburg.
The Vicksburg Post reports (http://bit.ly/1fzCMFt) that Ivan W. Banks, Alcorn's director of online education and initiatives, outlined the program for city officials this week.
Banks says the Vicksburg branch will be designated as a Microsoft IT Academy.
The online training program offers students and teachers training from basic use of Microsoft programs like Excel and PowerPoint to more complex tasks like programming.
Banks says the academy's launch date depends on completion of agreements with Wilmington, Delaware-based Knowledge Solutions International, Alcorn's partner on the project.
The company works with businesses, governments and schools on IT education and training.
