Dear Learning Community,
Finally, on Monday, the new course "Object-oriented programming with Java" begins (in German language). We are looking forward to 4 exciting and intense weeks with you. Maybe you don't know, yet, what classes, objects, variables and loops are, but no worries, after having taken the course you will have a good overview of these topics. The main focus is on practical programming exercises, which can be edited directly in the browser thanks to the web-based programming platform CodeOcean.
If you are not enrolled to the course, yet, you can do so here.
openHPI at CeBIT
The world's biggest computer fair, the CeBIT in Hannover, came to an end yesterday. Of course, openHPI was there, too. Enriched by a lot of new impressions and feedback, we are back now (a big thank you at this point to all the openHPI learners who came to see us there!). Federal Minister of Education Johanna Wanka, the Saxon Minister of the Interior Markus Ulbig and the ministers Meisch (education) and Schmit (labour) from Luxembourg came to visit HPI and got informed about openHPI and the other HPI MOOC platforms. Furthermore, a lot of school classes took the opportunity to learn more about the HPI and the course offer of openHPI. They especially liked the openHPI quiz in which the players had to answer 10 questions concerning the Internet and social media in a short time - the winner received an openHPI cup.
MOOC BOOK - A guideline on how to apply MOOCs
openHPI recently joined the EU project bizMOOC. Together with 10 partners from the whole of Europe we have summarized in a MOOC BOOK guidelines, best practices and recommendations on how to apply MOOCs. Especially for the world of business and for Higher Education Institutions (HEI) MOOCs have a huge potential, for example for training, marketing or recruiting purposes. Guidelines provide the extensive knowledge on applying MOOCs from external providers and applying self-produced MOOCs, answering questions such as what the potential costs are when employing the existing MOOCs by other providers, or what the options are if the business wants to provide MOOCs on their own.
Did we spark your interest? Here you can access the MOOC BOOK.
