In this course, we will show how humanoid robots are already part of our everyday lives. In addition to robotic lawnmowers or vacuum cleaners, there are an increasing number of robots that resemble and imitate human abilities and appearance. What are the current capabilities of these robots? How are they controlled? How can we learn from and with them? This course aims to answer these and other questions. It gives a first overview of humanoid robots and their use in today’s world.

Dieser Kurs dient zur Schulung von Lehrkräften des Internats Louisenlund bei der Erstellung eigener Inhalte für die schulische Bildung.

Nearly all branches of public life have been introducing digital methods into their daily routines with one exception: teaching and learning. Teachers and learners of all levels have by and large been stuck in 20th century teaching scenarios that dispense with the principles of digitization.

In this class, Prof. Handke, one of Germany’s leading experts of digital teaching and learning, first identifies the digital elements, scenarios and formats that not only solve numerous problems of traditional teaching and learning but will also be beneficiary in many ways. Using an integrative model of digitization he will not only show how new digitized course formats enrich teaching and learning are used but will also embark on creating them, thus leading to more individualization and higher degrees of flexibility.

Dieser kurze Robotikum-Vorkurs zeigt, dass neben Roboter-Rasenmähern oder Staubsaugern auch Roboter, die menschliche Fähigkeiten haben und uns im Aussehen ähneln, mehr und mehr Teil unseres Alltags werden. Was können diese Roboter genau und wie werden sie gesteuert? Diese kurze Einführung beantwortet diese Fragen und führt in die Steuerung und Programmierung von Robotern des Typs NAO ein.

The collection of these linguistic OER modules, where each module approximates the content of 90 minutes in class teaching were combined to the "Introduction to Linguistics" course EL100 for University of Rizal System in the the Philippines.

This course covers the history of the English language from its remote Indo-European origins (and even before) to the present day.

It provides substantial information about the English language at different periods and applies the main theoretical and technical concepts of historical linguistics, taking into account recent work in historical and general linguistics. To satisfy the needs of the current secondary school curriculum in many countries, its main focus, however, is Early Modern English. In order to successfully apply the main concepts of historical linguistics it is recommended to work through the VLC202 repository "Historical Linguistics" beforehand or in parallel with ELS111.

Special emphasis will be put on practical aspects, such as, reading and the analysis of texts taken from different periods of English.

In this class, we first provide an overview of computer-mediated communication: its definition, contexts, and theories. We then look into the relationship between technology and pedagogy. Then, we will also examine several other allied topics, including health, legal, and political communication.

The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with the main aspects of syntax in general and the structural properties of English syntax in particular.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • types of grammar
  • phrase structure
  • principles of syntactic argumentation
  • variants of generative grammar
  • the structure of sentences in English

This course introduces students to the basic concepts underlying the production, perception, and physics of speech. It is subdivided into three parts:

  1. A general survey of articulatory phonetics
  2. A short introduction to auditory phonetics
  3. A discussion of the most important physical aspects of speech and the most widely used experimental techniques.

Since many universities confine their curriculum to articulatory phonetics, this part is given maximum attention in the course.
