With the AI Campus, our aim is to promote AI skills and competences on a broad scale and get even more people interested in the topic.
The learning platform for artificial intelligence is designed to enable learners to better understand, question and shape the future of AI.
Our open-licence learning opportunities are available free of charge. They are aimed at students, professionals and lifelong learners interested in AI.
The AI Campus is a pilot project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) focused on developing the prototype for a digital learning platform specifically geared towards AI. Since October 2019, the AI Campus has been jointly developed by the Stifterverband, the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), NEOCOSMO and the mmb Institute, and a beta version was released in July 2020.
We are successively expanding the learning opportunities and functionalities of the AI Campus, and we consider it especially important to incorporate the needs and ideas of students, learning providers and teachers directly in the future development of the platform. Please use the AI Campus and support us with your feedback in our continuous development!
Our learning platform is specifically focused on learners, with the aim of providing them with a diverse selection of high-quality AI learning opportunities all in one place.
The content of the AI Campus therefore consists of two pillars:
Own learning opportunities (AI Campus Originals)
By 2022, our partners will develop learning opportunities on different topics specifically for the AI Campus (“AI Campus Originals”). These include massive open online courses (MOOCs), videos, podcasts and many other formats catering to the needs of a diverse learning community.
Curated learning opportunities (External)
We select already existing (open) learning opportunities and promote them via the AI Campus (“External”). Universities and other online learning providers benefit from the improved visibility of their learning formats, which will be embedded in an overarching ecosystem for strengthening AI skills and competencies.
The AI Campus encompasses the foundations of AI as well as interdisciplinary research in specific fields such as machine learning. In addition, the AI Campus is aimed at developing learning opportunities that specifically address the needs of individual sectors or specialist areas, such as the use of AI in medicine.
1 Technical interoperability and cooperation with other platforms and initiatives are considered to be essential principles.
2 Learners and learning processes are at the focus of platform and content development (Shift from Teaching to Learning).
3 The instructional design for the AI Campus is sustainable, innovative and includes social learning formats.
4 The platform is based on agile, participative and user-oriented product development.
5 The learning formats include AI methods (e.g. learning analytics and recommendation systems) and offer a high degree of clarity, personalization and adaptability.
6 All educational resources created and technologies used follow the principle of openness, e.g. by developing open educational resources (OER) and open code.
Our mission: We strengthen AI skills and competences through innovative, digital learning opportunities.
