We are honored to welcome RWTH Aachen as an edX Contributing Charter Member.
A leading technical university in Germany and throughout Europe, Aachen will bring its educational content, expertise and research to the edX global learning community.
Through its edX partnership, Aachen will expand its online course offerings and innovative teaching and learning formats. Aachen MOOCs on edX will offer its teaching, research and faculty to a worldwide learning audience, while also enhancing the on campus learning experience for residential students.
Aachen’s first edX course, Introduction to Venture Capital: How to Get Money for your Startup, is now open for enrollment and starts on January 25, 2016. Professor Malte Brettel from Aachen’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Group will teach learners the essential skills and knowledge to successfully work with venture capitalists to raise funds and launch a startup. The course provides an inside look into the world of venture capital for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. RWTH’s Media for Teaching department designed the MOOC’s videos especially for the edX format to make learning possible regardless of time or location.
