Welcome to the Network for higher education online in Bavaria!

You would like to develop an online course or teaching materials that all students in Bavaria can use? You would like to make university knowledge from your research and teaching freely accessible to all interested parties? You would like to have a large pool of high-quality online materials for your teaching or would like to share already existing digital teaching offers? Then you've come to the right place.

As a network of Bavarian universities, universities of applied sciences and one university of music, vhb is a partner in the development and operation of online lectures. We promote interuniversity online teaching in Bavaria for you and with you.

We support the development of CLASSIC vhb courses embedded in the curriculum and SMART vhb learning units that can be flexibly integrated into classroom teaching for use across all our 33 member universities. We also make knowledge from the universities freely accessible to everyone by promoting and funding our OPEN vhb courses. In addition, we offer Bavarian universities the opportunity to provide open educational resources (OER) in our repository.

Online courses and digital teaching and learning materials that you have developed outside of the vhb's funding opportunities can be included into the vhb portfolio. You can find more information about contributing digital teaching here on our German website “Digitale Lehre einbringen”.

As it is time-consuming to conduct high-quality online courses and keep them up-to-date, vhb offers even more: it funds tutorial support in CLASSIC vhb courses as well as the revision of existing CLASSIC vhb and OPEN vhb courses.
