About Open HPI
The first online course on the Hasso Plattner Institute’s new learning platform was published online in September 2012.
The success convinced others.
In 2013, Software company SAP (openSAP) and, in 2016, the World Health Organization (OpenWHO) partnered with us and adapted the course concept on their own platform instances.
Since 2020, several more plattform instances have been added to accommodate the need of other partners such as the publicly funded research projects AI-Campus and eGov-Campus.
By now, we have passed 11 million enrollments in total. Particluarly, the numbers on the OpenWHO platform have increased significantly in a very short time frame during the beginning of the pandemic.
