What is a course reactivation for openHPI courses?

An openHPI course reactivation gives you the option to reactivate an openHPI course that is in self-study mode. This will give you access to all graded exams, so if you achieve a minimum score of 50% you will receive a Record of Achievement for the course.

What do I have to do to reactivate a course?

Not all courses are available for reactivation. If course reactivation is available for a course, you will see the "Reactivate Course" icon on the Course Details page.

For exact pricing, please visit the openHPI Shop.

To reactivate an eligible course, follow these three simple steps:.

  1. Purchase an openHPI course reactivation code via the openHPI Shop.
  2. Click on "Reactivate course". You will be redirected to a page where you can reactivate the course.
  3. Add your code in the field "Enter your voucher code". Click "Redeem Voucher" and the course will be reactivated.

Please note: VAT is charged on all digital products sold to the European Union.

How long do I have to complete the graded exams?

You have 8 weeks from the date of redemption to complete the graded exams (weekly tests and final exam).

Can I receive a certificate for a reactivated course?

Yes, you can use a code for a paid Certificate in addition to the Course Reactivation if the course offers to achieve a Certificate. If you wish to earn a paid Certificate, automated facial recognition will verify that you are taking the graded exams independently and in person.

Why is there a fee to reactivate a course?

We believe that you will achieve the greatest learning success if you can benefit from all the features of a live course. This includes, but is not limited to, intensive support from the teaching team and interaction with other learners. To further encourage learners to participate in openHPI courses during the scheduled course duration, we are introducing a small fee for obtaining a Record of Achievement in self-study mode. Our goal is to support learners who were unable to complete a course during the scheduled term. You will have flexibility through Course Reactivation to certify your results in self-study mode -- an option that has been requested frequently by our learners. We are happy to offer it as an additional option without compromising the free live course experience at openHPI.

Is the reactivation code I can purchase tied to a specific course or user?

No, the reactivation code can be used for any course for which course reactivation is offered. The code is not assigned to a specific person.

Why are only certain courses available for reactivation?

Only courses that have offered the earning of a Record of Achievement or Certificate during the course term can be reactivated. However, there are some limitations to this as well: Courses cannot be offered for reactivation if peer assessments must be completed for a credential or if an external system is used for graded exams whose availability cannot be assured. Course reactivation is also unavailable if a new course edition is scheduled to be offered on our platform in the near future. Regular participation in courses during the course duration is always free of charge.

Can I use the corresponding systems for exercises offered during the regular course duration?

It is not mandatory to complete the practical exercises in order to receive a Record of Achievement. System availability is dependent on the systems used in the course.

Can I participate in the discussion forum to receive technical support for reactivated courses?

When a course is in self-paced mode, you cannot create new posts in the forum to request expert assistance. However, you can search the forums for answers given during the regular course duration.

I am an HPI employee - can I get a course reactivation voucer?

Yes, please create a ticket through the openHPI helpdesk with the category "openHPI Course Reactivation". Please include the number of reactivation vouchers required.
