We live in an increasingly connected world – a world of digital opportunities and challenges.

The units of the MOOC series “Digitales Leben” (“Digital Life”) explore different aspects of the digital transformation and cover a wide range of topics, such as the digital transformation in healthcare and law, moral questions about sex robotics, algorithmic bias within institutions, changes related to journalism and the media landscape, the significance of human-computer interfaces and hacking and making as active participation. The “Digitales Leben” MOOCs enable participants to get insights and opinions from experts and researchers.

Each unit in this MOOC series is self-contained. As a course participant, you can choose your own learning path. In each course, interactive elements and a mentored forum, available from October to January, will support you on your journey through the digital transformation. Welcome to the “Digitales Leben” series!
