Department / Institute:
Prof. Paulssen offers didactically compressed videos on any problem from formal education in the form of an online video platform. Interactive elements such as multiple choice tests after each video give users the opportunity to consolidate what they have learned through practice. In addition to mathematics, natural sciences and foreign languages, lessons on subjects such as business administration are also offered. For the problem subject mathematics alone, more than 2,000 videos are already available for all pupils from grade 5 and for students.

Founded in Berlin in 2008, sofatutor GmbH relies on the proven concept of crowdsourcing: The same people who also teach offline at schools, provide tutoring or conduct tutorials become "video stars" on Talented tutors and other professionals can earn money at sofatutor. sofatutor therefore works with the market participants and not against them. The performance-based profit sharing of video producers provides clear incentives for the production of many videos (crowdsourcing), whereby the quality of the videos is strictly controlled by experts in the respective field. 

After only a few months a wide range of professional learning videos could be offered, which are already used intensively by pupils and students.
