The Minister of Education in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Simone Oldenburg, presents an eLearning course to help German upper secondary school students increase their mathematic proficiency.

The new training course is available on the digital platform itslearning and can be accessed at home as well as in the classroom. “In addition to self-study tools such as explanatory videos, the course offers a live online service in which a teacher solves tasks and students can ask questions,” explains Oldenburg.

“With this course we are breaking new ground. Digitization opens up new possibilities for us. It is a real benefit that young people can use the training anywhere and at any time.”

“This eLearning course is the first content-related module of the general digital state school and shows in an exemplary way how this school will function without its own school building. By 2026, further offers are to be launched step by step and made available nationwide,” she announced.

The course includes explanatory videos by two students in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern who are enthusiastic about math. Eric Bonack (17) and Fabian Schwenk (18) are in the 12th grade at Teterow Gymnasium and their short films are devoted to the subjects of analytical geometry, analysis and stochastics. They explain step by step how even complicated questions can be easily solved.
