Of particular interest to the MIT Club of Germany e.V. is the promotion of networking opportunities in science and education in Germany. In this regard, we would like to highlight the following projects:
edX was founded by Harvard University and MIT in 2012 as an online learning destination and MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) provider, offering high-quality courses from the world’s best universities and institutions to learners everywhere. edX continues to be the only leading MOOC provider that is both nonprofit and open source.
Created by MIT, MIT BLOSSOMS (Blended Learning Open Source Science or Math Studies) is an international community of educators from all parts of the world who have created interactive video lessons that can be downloaded and used in classrooms. These videos are free and available to all.
MIT OpenCourseWare (MIT OCW) was launched in 2002. MIT had the bold vision of putting materials for all of its courses online, and of making them available to everyone free of charge. Not only have thousands of individual learners increased their knowledge through these materials but educators worldwide have used them in their own classrooms.
With about 500 alumni living in Germany, the MIT Club of Germany e.V. is a volunteer organization that brings together alumni and friends for intellectual, professional, and social interactions. We welcome all who share our interests to join with us in our events.
Technology Review is a magazine and website that provides an intelligent, lucid, and authoritative filter for the flood of information about technology. It is a magazine of serious journalism that is written in clear and simple language.
In Braunschweig, the prize-winning project Experts to the Schools has existed for many years. Through the use of this website, contact is facilitated between experts and teachers on subjects directly related to the student’s curriculum.
The House of Science Braunschweig is a platform for dialogue between research and other social areas. It promotes scientific communication and interdisciplinary networking of science with business, culture, the city, and with the interested public. As an experimental and learning location, it offers exciting events and exhibitions for people of all ages.
The Thuringian Institute for Teacher Training, Curriculum Development and Media (German acronym: THILLM) offers various opportunities for further education and training, especially for teachers from Thuringia. These events can be filtered and booked through an online portal. Furthermore, THILLM supports teachers in all areas through a media library, which gives anyone online access to Thuringian schools. Here you will find materials such as complete instructional series, specialist articles, video clips or audio contributions to different disciplines.
