The courses are developed for Educatis by renowned international experts and focus on specific topics. With the self-study e-seminars, you are able to train yourself anytime, cost-efficient and on the latest state of the art of science and technology. The e-colloquia focuses on the specific knowledge transfer and the exchange of experiences between the lecturer and the participants. The members meet in small groups in the virtual classroom to discuss the group work and the solutions.
