  • explore the campus of FernUniversität in Hagen, including its logistics center and video studio (and try the latter if you dare ;-),
  • be inspired by innovative international distance teaching projects,
  • get insights into learning management systems, e-teaching certificates, assessment and quality assurance in distance learning, teaching in different educational cultures, …
