NVIDIA DLI Teaching Kits for Educators

Universities are at the forefront of nurturing the next generation in the emerging technologies of accelerated computing, data science, and AI. NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) Teaching Kits lower the barrier of incorporating AI and GPU computing in coursework with downloadable teaching materials and online courses that provide the foundation for understanding and building hands-on expertise in these critical areas.

Benefits for Educators

Removing Barriers to Teaching New Technologies

NVIDIA DLI Teaching Kits

Saves Class and Lab Planning Time

Developing new teaching materials like lecture slides and hands-on labs can take a significant amount of time for busy faculty. Teaching Kits significantly cut course content development time for instructors.

Free access to DLI online courses

Reduces Cost and Infrastructure Needs

New teaching materials and supplies cost money and creates barriers to entry for the student, creating barriers. Teaching Kits provide educators and their students' free access to GPUs in the cloud in two ways: through Amazon’s AWS Educate program, which offers educators and their students extended cloud credits, and free access to DLI online courses.

NVIDIA co-develops Teaching Kits with academic partners

Addresses Academic Theory and Fundamentals

Many tech companies only provide applied industry and professional training material to universities, which lacks fundamentals and academic theory. NVIDIA co-develops Teaching Kits with academic partners to combine the latest industry trends, GPU architectures, and applications, with fundamental theory and pedagogy from academia.

 NVIDIA’s educator communities

Singular, Comprehensive Course Offering with Support

Another barrier is the expertise required to teach the technology and select the platforms and resources best for teaching. The Teaching Kits program offers support from NVIDIA and NVIDIA’s educator communities, discussions at conferences, getting-started guides, webinars, an open channel for educators to provide feedback and ask questions, plus more.

The Foundation for Next-Generation Innovators

Bringing AI to the Classroom: NVIDIA's Deep Learning Teaching Kit

Deep Learning

Co-developed with Professor Yann LeCun and his team at New York University (NYU) this Teaching Kit leverages the latest computing frameworks and techniques to explore introductory and advanced deep learning topics, from image classification to generative adversarial networks (GANs) to natural language processing (NLP).

Accelerated Computing Teaching Kit for University Educators: Introduction

Accelerated Computing

Co-developed with Professor Wen-Mei Hwu and his team from the University of Illinois (UIUC) and Professor Sunita Chandrasekaran and her team from the University of Delaware, this Teaching Kit covers introductory and advanced topics such as parallel programming APIs, programming tools and techniques, principles and patterns of parallel algorithms, and processor architecture features and constraints.

NVIDIA and California Polytechnic University (CalPoly)

Robotics

NVIDIA and California Polytechnic University (CalPoly) collaborated to bring educators the Robotics Teaching Kit with “Jet,” containing everything needed to teach a full-term course covering introductory and advanced robotics concepts such as sensors, computer vision, machine learning, robot localization, and control.

NVIDIA and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)

Data Science

In collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and Prairie View A&M University, this Teaching Kit focuses on GPU-accelerated algorithms and data science using the RAPIDS™ framework. The content has also been developed with cultural awareness, addressing issues such as bias and fairness in data science.

Class Content That is Comprehensive and Source-Level

Co-developed with university faculty, NVIDIA Teaching Kits provide content to help university educators incorporate GPUs into their curriculum and deliver AI-ready content. And access to free DLI online courses offers the opportunity to earn certificates of subject matter competency to support career growth.

DLI Teaching Kits are very helpful for me and act as a class booster. Initially, I start with the basic training examples. The kits really help me to teach them the basics of deep learning such as convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, and their training processes.

- Vipul Kumar Mishra, Associate Professor, Bennett University, Indias

Students know that the material we present is state of the art and up to date, so it gives them confidence in the material and draws a lot of excitement.

- Daniel Wong, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Riverside

If you want to spend time productively and if you want to do cool research, use the Teaching Kit. You'll save valuable time, and there's a lot of freedom to do it your own way adapted to your culture and to the demands of your own students but supported with very high-quality resources.
