Dear learning community,
We are looking forward to an extensive and hopefully exciting fall course program at openHPI, to which we would like to invite you all.
openHPI forum - October 14 to 28
The openHPI-Forum, HPI's conference on MOOCs and digital learning, will take place virtually for the first time this year - as a two-week "event course" (in English) on openHPI. Under the title "Lessons learned about digital education in times of crisis", we want to discuss with you how the coronavirus pandemic affects online education in various areas of life. In addition to numerous video contributions by actors in this field, there will also be opportunities for interaction: On Friday, October 16 and Friday, October 23, interested listeners can participate in a virtual live panel on the topic of "Sharing digital teaching and learning experiences". Afterward, there will be the opportunity to participate in various workshops offered by our partner platforms openSAP, OpenWHO, and Lernen.cloud.

Knowledge Graphs (in English) - Starts on October 27
The new course by Prof. Dr. Harald Sack and Dr. Mehwish Alam (FIZ Karlsruhe) shows how so-called knowledge graphs make web research more efficient. The title of the six-week course in English is "Knowledge Graphs". Knowledge graphs are - to put it simply - database systems on the Internet that collect many frequently entered search words and display related content. Probably the best-known knowledge graph is Google's knowledge graph.
The course is aimed at computer science students, young professionals, and scientists from the fields of ITC, semantic web, ML, and AI as well as experts in digital humanities and cultural heritage. To complete the course, participants should have a basic knowledge of web and database technologies, statistics, and probability theory.

Which application can benefit most from which resource? How can sophisticated hardware and operating systems and cross-platform programs - i.e. middleware - be used to improve aspects such as system reliability, high availability, and serviceability? The topics taught in the course are aimed at IT interested people who have basic knowledge in computer science and algorithms.
