Technical University of Munich (TUM)
Lifelong learning on Industry 4.0
with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
Lifelong learning is a key requirement in today’s society. To cope with the resulting huge increase of learners, and to meet their individual requirements, Digital Teaching will be crucial. Within the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future, we lift teaching to a new level by exploring and supporting the use of digital technology.
In order to reach a new level of teaching materials, the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) work on guidelines for highly successful and efficient digital teaching. This includes a handbook on MOOC production and a handbook on running schools. On both we are currently working.
In addition, the GFA partners jointly produce MOOCs. For more info about the MOOC, get in contact with the MOOC managers of our institutions.
Currently two MOOCs are in the making with the GFA:
- Industrial Internet of Things Essentials (launch planned for summer 2021)
- Blockchain (launch planned for fall 2021)
They extend our big existing portfolio of MOOCs.
