E-Learning Courses

Virtual courses can be followed from home. Our e-learning courses are offered through different online platforms and KIT Virtual Grounds. The courses are taught through a combination of live presentations, virtual classroom discussions, group work, and self-paced activities to be done at home. Interaction is very much part of KIT’s teaching methods, so in our e-learning courses we will also ensure a high degree of participation.

Due to COVID-19, a number of short courses in Spring 2020 were temporarily given as e-learning courses so participants could follow them safely from home. Should the situation again not allow for face-to-face learning, we will consider doing this again.

Below you will find our e-learning courses. Please note that due to the corona situation the list may change.

Our e-learning courses

GIS for Global Health


Due to the Corona virus/COVID-19 outbreak this course is exceptionally given as a virtual learning course, so all participants can follow it safely from home.

The explosive availability of open source health data offers new opportunities to analyze and monitor trends in disease. It also opens new pathways to assess how effectively health systems can address these trends. Epidemiologists, health professionals and policymakers increasingly utilize new analytical techniques and software to process and analyze the growing volumes of high resolution health data.

This course trains health professionals with the essential skills to map and analyze routinely collected health data. In this training you will learn what data and methods are used to detect areas of high disease risk and to compare these with geographic patterns of health service delivery.
