Hamburg Open Online University

In 2015 the Hamburg Senate, the government of the City and the state Hamburg in Germany, founded a digital strategy to bundle up all digital processes and create structures for those. For education, the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU) stands for this. This cross-university project is funded by the network of the six state-owned Hamburg universities and the government.
In the future, the HOOU wants to enrich and supplement the classical teaching of the Hamburg universities with the possibilities of digital technologies. The learning offers of the HOOU are to be made freely accessible to all interested in the Internet.

The peculiarity of the concept lies in the desire to create a digital space in which students, teachers as well as the interested public can meet to work together on interdisciplinary, cross-university projects with academic aspirations. And it also should be a low-threshold offer for refugees.

Four aspects serve as guiding principles:

  1. Orientation on learners and collaboration
  2. Science
  3. Opening up to new target groups and civil society relevance
  4. Openness /OER

The content is constantly growing and a number of learning courses and webinars are in different languages, for ex. interactive programming courses, topics in law and economics, sonic environments for healing, project management in urban design or the sounds of the Port City Hamburg.

Beside this they offer a lot of materials (eg texts, pictures, videos or links) on a specific topic, such as a specific research question or learning unit.

If the content of HOOU is not interesting for you it might be interesting for your users and customers.
