Current Information on the Corona Virus on openHPI

Due to recent events, the Hasso Plattner Institute has decided to provide a collection of material with videos, links and further information about the novel corona virus at openHPI. In consultation with the [Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA)][1], for example, a video with frequently asked questions was included. Under the learning content "[OpenWHO][2]" also non-German speaking citizens can find current courses and information about the coronavirus in different languages (provided by the World Health Organization).

Today, the openHPI developer team presents two new features which will hopefully make the use of the platform more comfortable for learners.
