Dear Learning Community,
Today we would like to introduce the next five openHPI courses on the future of computing, minicomputer, Design Thinking, business processes as well as IT security and an innovative feature that makes it possible to earn a "Record of Achievement" or "Qualified Certificate," something which can usually only be done in six-week courses.
How can we master the exponential growth of data?
As more and more unstructured data, such as the Internet of Things, is created and needs to be analyzed it is necessary to pursue new approaches in software development. The openHPI course “Future of Computing - IBM POWER9 and Beyond” deals with the provision of microservices, container solutions and cloud-based applications as well as new basic technologies, such as artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies. Use cases are provided by the companies Vattenfall and Bosch. For the free online course, in addition to the regular Record of Achievement, a Qualified Certificate from the Hasso Plattner Institute can also be obtained. Universities are free to decide on the allocation of ECTS credits for students.
You can enroll in this Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) starting on May 1 here!
How can I build a remote control car or a monitoring system for plants by myself?
In the two-week online course “Wie programmiere ich meinen ersten Mini-Computer?,” starting on May 2 in German, two master students from the Hasso Plattner Institute introduce initial programming experience to young people. Twenty-three-year old Lisa Ihde and her fellow student Daniel-Amadeus Glöckner (24) show their participants how to readout sensors, to control motors and to actuate LED lights. Lisa and Deus assembled their openHPI course out of many different practical tasks. The level of difficulty increases, but the tasks can be finished independently, too.

Design Thinking: Beyond Brockhaus Thinking
Design Thinking is an innovation approach that has evolved through the past 12 years from a university program at Stanford and HPI Potsdam to a globally respected and universally applied set of methods and tools for supporting and driving change towards a networked culture in organizations. The course “Beyond Brockhaus Thinking: With Design Thinking to a Networked Culture” starting on May 8 is an introduction to the core principles of Design Thinking. It explains the innovation method’s cultural impact and inspires us in actively using Design Thinking at the organizational level.
Please enroll here!
Business Processes: Modeling, Simulation, Execution
This year markets and rules of the economic system are experiencing dynamic change. In the English-language online course starting on 15 May: “Business Processes: Modeling, Simulation, Execution” the main concepts for describing and analyzing business processes and decisions will be presented. Experts from the companies Signavio (Decision Modeling and Simulation of Business Processes) and Camunda (Concepts and Methods for Developing Executable Business Processes) will also offer practical knowledge on the management of business processes. During the course, these providers grant free access to their respective software. For the free online course, you can also obtain a qualified certificate in addition to the regular certificate.
Registrations are possible via this link!
Security for your mail communication
E-mail is one of the most important communication mediums of our time. However, the technology leaves much to be desired in terms of safety. E-mail users can neither be sure that outsiders don’t read their messages, nor that they arrive at the recipient without any changes. Appropriate security measures - the so called end-to end encryption as well as digital signatures - have to be managed by users themselves. In the openHPI workshop “Communicating Securely Via E-mail,” starting on 22 May, you will be taught practical exercises to teach fellow readers how to send and receive encrypted and digitally signed e-mails using free tools.
We welcome your registration here.
Innovative examination offer
We are pleased to announce a new platform feature that is now activated:
Do not miss the start of the Cybersecurity Basics exam next week! The three confirmations of participation in the courses Datensicherheit im Netz, Digitale Identitäten – Wer bin ich im Netz? and Blockchain – Sicherheit auch ohne Trust Center (in German), which you can still attain, enable you to take this exam. Thereby you can earn a Record of Achievement or qualified certificate, which is normally only possible in six-week courses.
Enjoy your courses! We look forward to your much-appreciated feedback and hope to see you soon!
Best wishes, your Open HPITeam
