The eGov-Campus represents an education and training platform for public administration. In this, eGov-Campus focuses strongly on the development as well as implementation of innovative and digital teaching and learning concepts. The goal of the project is to provide a freely accessible pool of educational resources that enables and promotes the development of competencies for the digital transformation of public administration. As of 2022, 16 courses had already been put online and the offering is constantly being expanded.
The project was initiated and led by the State of Hesse in 2020 to promote digital competencies in education, training and further education as well as in personnel development and recruitment. To this end, the project was funded for two years with 2.2 million euros from the IT Planning Council. The collaboration is being carried out with various cooperation partners consisting of universities, colleges and research institutions from all over Germany. From the year 2023, the project will be transferred to the responsibility of Fitko (Federal IT Cooperation).
The Chair of Public and Nonprofit Management is involved in the design and execution of several courses on the platform. The courses offered are Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and blended learning scenarios.
For the conception and implementation of the modules, the Chair of Public and Nonprofit Management has received third-party funding and financed a research position.
2021-22: New ways of working and leading in digitized administrative structures
The module "Neues Arbeiten und Führen in digitalisierten Verwaltungsstrukturen" (New ways of working and leading in digitized administrative structures) highlights changes in public administration "from the bottom up". In fact, the working level of administration receives little attention in classical administrative science/administrative organization and administrative informatics, where policy and management aspects in particular take up most of the space. However, due to the Corona crisis, this very level has gained momentum, thus making the course also highly relevant in practical terms.
The objective of the course is therefore to familiarize the learners with the new and personnel challenges of digitalized public work organizations. Consequently, the course aims at broadening the understanding and providing methods and tools to manage work, learning and leadership in the digitalized work organization.

2020-21: Administration portals
At the launch of the platform, the learning module "Administration Portals," designed by Prof. Dr. Proeller, Prof. Dr. Schuppan and Phillip Kuscher, was one of the first five modules students could enroll in through the learning platform. The aim of the module is to familiarize the learners with the basic technical requirements of administration portals in a multi-level system as well as to convey an understanding of the organizational requirements as well as management and steering.
Furthermore, the usability and user orientation of administration portals in connection with methods for the target group-oriented selection of services and design requirements are considered.
