An Online Academic Course

About the course

An online, asynchronous course worth 2 academic credits, meant for students studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in the Hebrew University, Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and  Azrieli College of Engineering. Future cohorts may allow students from other institutions as well as non-students.

Participants will enjoy an interactive, collaborative taste of the worlds of innovation and entrepreneurship. The course emphasizes practical tools and knowledge relevant to the future of work and to the individual career paths of every student.

The course is taught using “Campus.il”, a platform that enables a revolutionary learning experience for students of the above mentioned institutions comprising the “JLM Impact” Consortium.

Course participants will watch short videos, answer questionnaires, converse in online forums and collaboration boards and – as a final assignment – develop a venture idea (either business, social, or design-oriented).

The course will culminate in a students’ presentation of their venture ideas.

The course has been developed in collaboration with the academic institutions comprising the JLM Impact Consortium, as well as guest lecturers and content experts.

It is the first in a series of three courses revolving around innovation and entrepreneurship.

The course was very good, relevant, interesting and helpful. I also liked the way the course was delivered, it is very convenient to study like this in an independent and responsible way.

Great job on making this course meaningful!

I really enjoyed the course and the form of learning and the videos which was really fun to watch and contributed to my knowledge. Most importantly – I was exposed to the world of entrepreneurship and innovation in the most clear and experiential way

I enjoyed!

I would just like to thank the whole team for this opportunity. This has been one of the most learning and developing courses I have taken in all my four years of studies with complete relevance throughout every step and something I feel I can take with me after the studies. I have learnt so much about the whole process, the business, myself and sharpened what I want to do I the future. I personally would like to thank Inbar for the constant communication and help with everything. Thank you all
