Dear Learning Community
We wish you a happy new year and all the best for you and your beloved ones!
We would like to start the year with two absolutely exciting courses, which we want to strongly recommend to you:
- Intrapreneurship – Make your Business great again. Learn how to realize new ideas within your organization and how to support your employees in this innovation process (in English language)
- Learning 4.0, a MOOC which shows the possibilities and limits of digitization in the education system (in German language).
Intrapreneurship - Make your Business great again
This course has been developed under the umbrella of the EU project BizMOOC and is offered by the Hasso Plattner Institute Potsdam, FH Joanneum Graz, University of Economics Cracow and AVL List GmbH.
What it’s about?
Do you have a great business idea, but you do not dare to take the risk alone and leave your current job? The course clarifies the intrapreneurship concept, outlines its opportunities for companies and employees, and introduces different practical tools to get started. You will learn to identify opportunities, to form coalitions and find sponsors, and to deliver a pitch to the various audiences, including the board of directors.
Who should attend the course
The course’s core target audience are managers who want to learn how to create an intrapreneurship-friendly environment in their company and employees who want to follow the entrepreneurial spirit. We also highly welcome students, people between jobs, and everybody who is just interested in the topic.
Good to know
The 6-week course (in English language) starts on February 26, 2018. All of you with limited amount of time have the chance to complete the course with exam and certificate after 4 weeks (fast track). If you bring a little bit more time you are able to take part in a teamwork and to pitch your own business idea in week 5 and 6 which qualifies you for the Certificate of Completion (full track). The course will be completely online (including the teamwork).

Learning 4.0 – Possibilities and Limits of digitization in the education sector
This course was developed within the framework of the German School Cloud project. It is realized by the Hasso Plattner Institute and the national school network of excellence MINT-EC in cooperation with the University of Augsburg.
What it’s about?
Digitization penetrates the education sector but teachers are rarely prepared for the associated changes. Current challenges lie in the systematical usage of digital media in class, in the reflection about successful digitization in a school context, as well as in the development of utilization concepts and didactic concepts. In this course, we will discuss main aspects of a digitization in a school context, show benefits and limits of digital media in the education sector, and establish a basis for the successful integration of the School Cloud by the Hasso Plattner Institute at school.
Who should attend the course?
The online course addresses first of all teachers and parents who ask themselves how digital media can enrich teaching and what are its limits. Furthermore, we welcome everyone who is interested in a successful digitization in the education sector. Being part of the School Cloud project is no requirement for taking the course.
Good to know
The German course will start on January 15 and end on April 16, 2018. Within these three months it will cover four modules. In the end you will receive a confirmation of participation.
