The departments in the collaborative research field of Cultural Heritage of the Faculty of Architecture have produced a course for the edX e-learning platform, which examines how cultural heritage can be defined, explored, preserved and used for the purpose of spatial development. The course, in the form of a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), illustrates and examines various methodologies and thematic approaches to Cultural Heritage, using the example of the City of Aachen. For this purpose, existing expertise has been collated and formulated into an integrated, interdisciplinary approach. The edX platform serves as a repository for the knowledge generated through this field of research and the edX course content itself can be regarded as a handbook for managing Cultural Heritage. The perspective therefore extends well beyond Aachen to cover national and international contexts and challenges.
