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.

Global perspectives on Digital Health

Note: Due to the Covid-19 situation this course is exceptionally organised entirely via e-learning.

This two-week course offers an introduction and overview of digital health, including a strong emphasis on how in reality, digital health functions in various settings. Participants will discuss how digital health interventions can help push the triple aim of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Goal Development for more people at a lower cost in different settings in high-, low- and middle-income countries. The program discusses what kind of analysis should be done for developing digital health intervention, which stakeholders should be involved and cross-cutting issues to be considered when implementing DHI in low resources settings.

Rebuilding Disrupted Health Systems – Developing context-specific strategies for health care policies, implementation and governance (E-learning) (RDHS-E)
