Analysts say the company is well on its way to developing a syllabus for its classes that would make it easier for students to learn digital skills.
Bistups are already being used by colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada to teach students the basics of digital technology.
But the company has said it wants to expand the curriculum beyond the classroom to include a wider range of topics.
In an interview with The Wall St. Journal, Google’s head of product development, James Linn, said the company was planning to develop its own syllabus that would include a curriculum for students, teachers and staff in different parts of the country.
The aim is to provide an “enriching” experience for students as they learn new digital skills, he said.
He did not specify how many students could participate.
“We have a really large number of students across our global network who need help with learning new digital technologies,” Mr. Linn said.
“Our aim is not to teach the students a particular technology.
Our aim is really to help them understand the technology, the technologies that are important to them, and what is the technology that’s important to that person.”
Google said it plans to create a syllabi that will be a “virtual encyclopedia” that students can access, and that the company will also offer other resources for students and teachers to use in their classes.
Mr. Karp said the focus on the classroom and the work being done in the classroom will help the company become a leader in digital learning.
“This is an incredibly important thing for us to do because it’s really critical for our long-term future,” he said in the interview.
Google will also introduce a new program that will let students study for two months in Google’s virtual labs and then transfer the learning to a computer, helping them build and understand algorithms.
Mr Karp would not say how much the program will cost, but said it will help students gain a deeper understanding of how technology works.
He said the idea of having a “digital encyclopedia” was “a really exciting opportunity.”
