We proudly announce that our group will contribute to the development of the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU) – an innovative higher-education initiative of Hamburg.
Initiated by Hamburg’s First Mayor Olaf Scholz and its Senate Chancellery, the HOOU project is a cooperation between the federal state government, the authority of science and research (BWF), Multimedia Kontor Hamburg (MMKH), and the six public universities in our city-state. The overall goals are to foster the digitization of the higher education, to open-up knowledge sharing and educational resources, and to provide an innovative, scalable and usable online platform for teaching and learning across the universities. HOOU will target not only university students but also everyone interested in education and knowledge. Within this project, MOBIS is researching and developing innovative approaches such as “Learning Analytics and Recommendation”, “Problem- and Project- based learning”, “Mobile Learning” and “Continuous Quality Assurance”.
