General Course Information

Course Goals

After completing this MOOC, participants will be able to design, plan and create their own MOOC.

Previous Knowledge

No special previous knowledge is necessary. However, didactic basics are desirable.

Course Procedure

The course consists of five lessons, each of which includes at least one video, various additional materials and a final quiz. The individual lessons will all be unlocked weekly after the start of the MOOC and will then be available as a self-study course.


For actively participating in the course you will receive an automatic certificate which includes your username, the course name as well as the completed lessons. We want to point out that this certificate merely confirms that the user answered at least 75% of the self-assessment questions correctly.
