SAP today announced more than 1 million enrollments on the openSAP platform just three years after the launch of the educational offering that delivers online courses. SAP started the openSAP platform in 2013 to create a learning environment specifically designed for the digital age.
Today, people no longer have time to spend in the classroom and want to learn at their own convenience and pace while sharing insights and lessons with peers. openSAP was conceived to tap into that need with a cloud-based learning service hosting free massive open online courses (MOOCs) in association with the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) based in Potsdam, Germany. SAP partnered with HPI, using the openHPI concept as a basis for openSAP. The high volume of enrollments on openSAP in less than three years indicates the growing popularity of the courses offered on the platform.
“I am enthusiastic about what the openSAP platform has provided to over 300,000 unique learners from more than 180 countries,” said Professor Hasso Plattner, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SAP SE. “We attribute the success of the platform to the fact that the courses are crafted specifically with the user in mind. Our courses are relevant to professionals’ careers and day to day tasks. Whether you are an SAP software user, employee, or just interested in digital technology, these courses are highly impactful.”
