Online courses an an alternative way of vocational orientation


We develop online courses (MOOCs), which are an alternative way of vocational orientation. The approach within the e-learning formats is completely different from the classic and very theoretical information materials (flyers, texts, etc.).

For the management and launch of the MOOCs, we will use a web-based open source Course and Learn Management System (LMS) that allows everybody to access, through registration, the course contents and materials, as well as discussion forums and other collaborative formats.

Why do we develop this product?

Vocational orientation for young people currently only takes place very poorly and mainly in theory at schools, job agencies or information centers. This is where we see the most urgent need for a digital, interactive and engaging alternative.

Students often have a wrong idea about certain career options or they exclude good job possibilities based on strong prejudices conveyed by society or the direct environment. There is a need for action here, especially for girls it is difficult to explore certain professions in a non-binding and open-minded way.

Beginners or interns with prior skills and knowledge are preferred by companies when looking for a job. But due to lack of opportunities, it is presently difficult for students to gain this knowledge in advance.

With the creation and provision of online courses, which provide deep insights into the different professional fields in the IT sector, we want to actively contribute to an improved career orientation for young people.

Our primary target group are students and interested young people who are looking for a job.
As a secondary target group we see companies which can use the online learning formats as an onboarding resource for newcomers.



Contemporary, digital and interactive knowledge transfer, around professional topics of IT and web technology  Holistic vocational orientation free from stereotypes concerning gender-specific skills

Training and preparing a new generation of software developers, DevOps, frontend developers and IT project managers Teaching open source philosophy, projects and technologies

Expected work results

The result will be four online courses, which provide deep insights into the different professional fields in the IT sector: 

  1. Course: Introductory course to the professional fields in the IT industry
  2. Course: The professional field of the software developer
  3. e: The professional field of the frontend developer
  4. Course: The professional field of the project manager

Time frame

The e-learning courses will be ready by the end of the year 2021. This is when we are planning to start the first testing phase. The official launch is planned for February 2022.
