Moreover, we have also prepared two MOOC courses Semantic Web Technologies in Spring 2013, and Knowledge Engineering with Semantic Web Technologies in Spring 2014, both very successful with thousand(s) of students.
This semester, I have decided not to do the very same all over again and to try out something completely different...
Have you ever heard of the Flipped Classroom concept? This semester, we are going to turn the lecture situation around for the students. All the lecture content has already been recorded. Thus, students can prepare for each lecture at home by watching the videos and studying the handouts as well as the course materials. Then, in the classroom, I will not present the content again, but we are going to discuss
- everything which needs more attention according to the students,
- everything that the students did not quite well understand,
- including all problems, errors, and complements that seem to be important.
I'm very curious whether this concept will work out well with my lecture here at HPI. Please keep your fingers crossed and I will keep you posted.
