Baking a cake or browsing on the Internet rather than learning for exams – many people know this procrastination. This is the point of departure of the online course “Abhaken statt Aufschieben – Der Prokrastinations-MOOC zum effizienten Handeln“ (Check rather than postpone, the procrastination MOOC for efficient acting). Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) successfully offered this course in 2014 already and has now issued a revised version. It includes videos that show how projects can be managed efficiently. The course is available on the online platform “Open Courses KIT“ (only in german).
