Dear Learning Community,
The millionth enrolment comes from the Rhine-Main area in Germany. Our millionth participant is Helmut Knauthe, a 63-year-old top manager of the Essen-based company, Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions AG. He is a mechanical engineer, who has been responsible for Technology, Innovation & Sustainability since 2013 and now has been awarded a tablet by us.
The course program on openHPI is reaching the end of the year. So, in addition to introducing a new Java course for advanced learners, we would also like to invite you to participate in the openHPI Forum 2021 next week.
Algorithms and Data Structures with Detective Duke (in German)
On Wednesday, November 24, we are starting the new Java course "Algorithms and Data Structures with Detective Duke" (in German) by Christiane Hagedorn, Selina Reinhard, Sebastian Serth, Thomas Staubitz, Hendrik Steinbeck, and Ralf Teusner.
The two-week in-depth course covers theoretical aspects of various data structures such as arrays, lists, stacks, queues, sets, maps, and trees, as well as their practical application in Java. Furthermore, the course team wants to teach which algorithms are available to sort or efficiently search these data structures.

openHPI Forum - November 24, 2021
Also on Wednesday, November 24, the openHPI Forum 2021 will take place between 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Under the motto "Online learning on openHPI - What have we learned from 2 years of the pandemic?" we want to discuss with you the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on online learning.
We are looking forward to numerous exciting contributions from HPI scientists, partners, and renowned university experts.
How can I quantify the online learning boom? What is the situation of international students in Corona times? How can OpenWHO help to fight the pandemic? How can I learn to program online? How much are online certificates and micro-degrees worth?
At this year's forum, Alexander Knoth (DAAD), Heini Utunen (WHO), Cordula Torner (KI-Campus), as well as Katja Assaf, Sebastian Serth, and Nils König (all HPI) will address all the above-mentioned questions and more, in their respective presentations.
In the panel discussion that will follow, Prof. Kerstin Ritter (Charité), Prof. Felix Naumann (HPI), Mara Meisel (HPI Academy), Prof. Dr. Tino Schuppan (HdBA), and Ralf Teusner (SAP) will discuss the requirements for a good online course.

We look forward to your participation! Please feel free to share these course and event tips with colleagues, friends, and acquaintances via email or social media.
