The Online Courses of the Hornemann Institute of the HAWK / University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hildesheim (Germany):
These Online Courses have been conceived for persons who are dedicated to cultural heritage preservation. Via Internet, you can retrieve the subject matters of your choice, irrespective of any temporal or geographical constraints, thereby avoiding time loss at work and saving travelling expenses. The modules facilitate individual studying with regard to time management, learning speed and the depth of knowledge you wish to achieve.

You can check your personal progress with the help of tests. While solving test problems, you can use your acquired skills. Subject matters have been put into multi-media form, i.e., texts are enlivened by images, videos, checklists, etc. The didactic variety and the interactivity will boost your motivation. Glossaries, bibliographical references and the integration of available internet resources will supplement the teaching materials.

Tutors will assist you whenever you encounter technical or content-related difficulties.
