All online courses—so far offered in German, English and Chinese—can also be used later in the archive mode. In contrast to “traditional” lecture portals, the openHPI courses follow a fixed schedule, which involves a defined and diverse content. This includes instructional videos, texts, self-tests, regular homework, and test exercises. These offers are combined with a forum where participants can engage in a lively exchange with the teaching team and other learners. In the forum they can also clarify questions and discuss more topics. Users can obtain a qualified certificate in selected courses, which allows their achievement to be recognized at universities in the form of ECTS points.
While many courses do not require prerequisites, there are also more specialized courses offered to deepen previous knowledge of experts. The courses directed at high school students enjoy a high level of popularity. Here, young people can get an introduction into the world of programming.
