Los Angeles, CA (April 20, 2020)—Roland has expanded its categories for Roland Cloud Academy, an online learning platform providing free music and video production training. The new offerings will add livestreaming, synthesizer and Zenbeats courses to the current lineup of offerings covering Roland’s DJ and production instruments.
In the Cloud Academy’s interactive, multimedia online platform, instructors provide real-time responses to questions submitted via live chat, voice, and webcam. Launched in 2017 as a free program, Roland Cloud Academy has reportedly doubled in both attendance and course offerings in 2020.
Sessions at the academy showcase Roland DJ products such as DJ-202, DJ-505, DJ-707M, and DJ-808 controllers, with MC-101 / MC-707 GROOVEBOXES and TR-8S Rhythm Performer recently added in February 2020. The newest course offerings announced today feature FANTOM Synthesizers, Zenbeats music creation app, and a general knowledge livestreaming course including two of Roland’s award-winning products, the VR-1HD AV Streaming Mixer, and the GO:LIVECAST Livestreaming Studio for Smartphones.
The new Livestreaming program familiarizes students with livestreaming fundamentals like online platforms, technical requirements, production basics and monetization options. An overview of several Roland streaming products and third-party cameras / accessories is also covered, with focus on video conferencing, remote teaching, live performance, worship services, gamecasting, and more.
Meanwhile, the newly added FANTOM curriculum, offered over three separate courses, aims to teach students the foundations of keyboard synthesis, performing and controlling external applications like Mainstage. The Cloud Academy’s two-tiered Zenbeats program offers users the chance to learn directly from product specialists and advance their skills and creative scope within the music software.
