Introducing the Katalon for Education program 🎓

Hi Community members, :wave:

The rising complexity and scale of software systems, and the emergence of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Software 2.0, Web3, and more, are driving the demand for skilled and knowledgeable software testers, especially in Automation Testing, more than ever. This is also reflected in the continued growth of the Automation Testing markset size from USD 27.65 billion in 2023 to USD 58.16 billion by 2028.

Higher education institutions worldwide have responded to this demand by introducing software testing in their curricula, either as distinct and separate courses, or blending software testing concepts within their software engineering and computer science programs.

Yet, this poses a variety of challenges, such as educators having a hard time keeping the courses to “remain" with the industry. In their research, Garousi et al. (2020) found that in many universities, testing concepts are only taught theoretically, with “a lack of practical scenarios to show students how the concepts should be applied” (Garousi et al., 2020, p.31)

Other findings highlight the lack of time and resources on the educators’ side, and using testing tools is also a challenge for many students, especially beginners or students who lack programming knowledge (Garousi et al., 2020, p.30).

With that said, today we are announcing the Katalon for Education program which aims to address some, if not all of, those issues by providing higher education institutions i.e. universities and colleges, with a 1-year subscription of the Katalon Platform free of charge to be used for educational and training purposes…
