openSAP Enterprise MOOCs focus on key SAP innovations such as SAP HANA, SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP’s UX strategy and SAP Fiori. The openSAP thought leaders series focuses on digital innovation and transformation independent of SAP-specific topics. While openSAP Enterprise courses are sponsored and delivered by SAP internal teams, openSAP thought leader courses are delivered by non-SAP industry leaders in business and academia in addition to thought leaders from SAP.
Most openSAP courses consist of video units, self-tests, discussion forum, weekly assignments and a final exam. Content is released on a weekly basis and you can access the content at any time, from anywhere and on any device. The content is usually released at 09:00 UTC but this doesn't mean you need to log on at that time. openSAP works independent of where in the world you are located!
An openSAP “In a Nutshell” course is an overview course with a total learning effort of 2-4 hours. This type of course is meant to help you familiarize yourself with brand new topics. You can access all the learning content at the very start of the course. The learning content comprises videos, self-tests, and a final exam. You can sit the final exam at any time throughout the duration of the course. It is the only thing required to obtain a record of achievement for the course. As with all other openSAP courses, you need to earn at least 50% of the maximum possible number of points to receive a record of achievement. Your results will be published once the course has closed.
The online content will be released at 9:00 UTC but as a learner, you do not need to be online at that time. However we do recommend that you access the content early in the week as you will need to submit a weekly assignment before the deadline. All openSAP courses are delivered in the format of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This course format provides learners with a flexible learning environment and learners can access the content at any time of the week, on any day that suits the learner. You can check your time zone against UTC (Reykjavik) on www.timeanddate.com or http://www.thetimenow.com.
The amount of work involved depends on your previous knowledge and is estimated at 4–5 hours per week, on average. This involves working with the videos and the course material provided, checking your understanding of the curriculum with a self-test, as well as completing the weekly assignment and actively participating in the discussion forum.
Upon a successful completion of an openSAP course, you can download a record of achievement from openSAP. Successful participation means that you have earned at least 50% of the sum of the maximum possible points for the weekly assignments and the final exam. The final exam is weighted at 50%. The record of achievement will be issued in the name you used to register at openSAP. Once issued, you can access your record of achievement by clicking the profile icon at the upper right corner of the menu bar and selecting Documents. Please note, in openSAP thought leaders courses, there is no final exam. The final result is based on the weekly assignment.
We will be glad to issue a confirmation of participation in a course to those who have completed at least 50% of the course material. Where there are exceptions for specific courses, you will be notified at the start of the course. Further information can be found in the Record of Achievement Guidelines.
While a course is running, you can visit the course forum to ask questions and discuss the course content with your peers and the course instructors. Please consult the discussion forum rules beforehand. These contain important guidelines and tips for posting threads.
The primary e-mail address is the e-mail address to which openSAP sends you notifications, for example, about course announcements or discussion forum activities. The primary e-mail address is also visible on your records of achievement.
If you want to change your primary e-mail address and the new e-mail address is already stored in your openSAP account under "other e-mails associated with this account", proceed as follows:
If you want to change your primary e-mail address and the new e-mail address is NOT yet stored in your openSAP account under "other e-mails associated with this account", proceed as follows:

To maintain your notification settings, navigate to your profile by clicking the profile icon at the right upper corner of the menu bar and select Settings. Here you can decide if you want to receive notifications from openSAP and wether you want to receive them via e-mail or in-app.
After logging in, navigate to the respective course details page. There, you will find an Un-enroll button. Please note: If you un-enroll from a course, you will still remain a member of openSAP and will receive news about upcoming courses.
Open your profile by clicking the Profile icon at the upper right corner of the menu bar and select profile. Then click Delete account to delete your account on openSAP irrevocably. Please note that deleting the account will also delete the Confirmation of Particpation, Record of Achievement, and Badge. Therefore please save locally before deleting the account.
As a rule, course registration should take place before a course has begun – or at least in the first 2 weeks of the course. Starting a course late means it becomes increasingly difficult to earn the number of points necessary for a record of achievement. If you register for a course after it has finished, it is no longer possible to earn a record of achievement. However, you can still sign up for a course in self-paced mode at any time and access all the relevant learning materials to earn a confirmation of participation.
At the end of a course, the materials remain available in the self-paced area. The only difference is that you can no longer contribute to the discussion forum, participate in the weekly assignments and final exam, or earn a record of achievement. The system access could be disabled too. You can still earn a confirmation of participation.
Unfortunately, we cannot extend the deadlines for completing the weekly assignment or final exam. If you're unable to complete the weekly assignment within the course week, you will need to earn more points in the following weeks to reach the total number of points necessary for a record of achievement. For more information please read the Record of Achievement Guidelines.
You are welcome to participate in just those areas of the course that cover your own interests and requirements. There is no obligation to complete the weekly assignments and earn a record of achievement. However, we do welcome every active contribution to the discussion forum.
