The city of Hamm was one of the COVID-19 hotspots in late summer, and a fast shift to online teaching formats was necessary at Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences (HSHL). In this article we show how Prof. Dr. Johanna Moebus adapted her simulation-based seminar for non-business students to distance learning.
Whether seminars with 500 students or a training program for 10 employees, our TOPSIM – Cloud can be used individually for all audiences and across learning objectives. Of course, the performance of our cloud is crucial to the success of any simulation-based seminar and we continue to improve and develop the existing solutions. With our technical partner nodapo Software GmbH from Hamburg, we are able to provide users with a valid system at any time.
At the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, three TOPSIM – Business Simulations are played in different semesters and study programs. Until last summer, all seminars took place in classroom format, and the shift to distance learning due to COVID-19 pandemic opened up entirely new possibilities. In this article, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schneider explains how the online simulation-based seminars are conducted and what advantages they offer.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, courses in this year’s International Business Consulting Program at the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg had to take place entirely online. Prof. Dr. Fischer was looking for a suitable opportunity to make an introduction into business studies and found it in TOPSIM on Demand – Business Challenge!
Whether distance, blended or classroom learning: exams are part of almost every course. And especially in times of digitalization and globalization, digital exam formats are becoming more important than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic made everyone work and learn from home, but also gave us the chance to try out new methods. In this article, we present the e-testing plattform Cybertest from MPS Europa, which you can use to easily switch to online exam formats.
