Hello, I'm Kai!
I studied mathematics and chemistry as a teacher and
currently work as a freelance writer. MOOCs have occupied me for more
than five years, at that time mainly as a participant. For two years now
I have also been creating courses on oncampus,
among others for Kiron University.
I would say that I live very digitally - my smartphone and my computer are almost rooted in me. Even as a teenager I gave computer courses for interested people - at a time when computers had to be connected with coaxial cables. (If you don't know that any more, that was really a long time ago!) Today it's my concern to convey to my students that this world out there also has a digital level.
