SAP offers free online courses at through a new program called Open SAP. The Open SAP education model gives learners an opportunity to study SAP technologies and network with other learners. The program is relatively new and currently offers ten courses.

Each Open SAP course has a set run time, start and end date, and final exam. Courses usually run 5 to 7 weeks. Participants are expect to complete weekly assignments and attend video lectures. Additional study materials such as slide decks and handouts are provided.

SAP offers courses over its own products and services as well as other operations critical courses. Sustainability and Business Innovation begins April 29, 2014. In this course, participants will learn about sustainability in context with other business units. Participants will learn how IT can help create competitive advantage while reducing cost and driving innovation.

Since this is not a developer-centric course, attendants need not be developers. Of course, developers are welcome to attend and encouraged to do so. No additional software or programming knowledge is required to attend.

Course Requirements (from the site):

  • Basic understanding of business and administration processes
  • Basic understanding of industry value chains
  • Basic understanding of information technology (IT)
  • Interest in sustainability

Completing all assignments (graded weekly) and completing a final exam earns a certificate of completion. The final exam is scheduled for the week of June 10-17, 2014. The course is free and open to the public. SAP claims courses are even compatible with tablet devices like the iPad. Open SAP hopes you’ll spend your Spring and Summer studying with SAP for free.
