Virtual Learning Bites

Virtual Learning Bites are short efforts taking about 2 hours to be spent over a period of a calendar month.  Each ‘bite’  covers a technique or concept that can be absorbed on its own. The participant learns a tool and is then able to apply it in business practice. A ‘bite’  thus has standalone value.

Each bite consists of:

  • A lesson with a short video, some pieces of texts and examples.
  • A discussion forum.
  • One or two assignments (expect feedback).
  • A pdf with the lesson text to keep.
  • A quiz.
  • Some notes that explain the context of the technique or concept.
  • A 30 mins close out video conference to reflect and share experiences.

Until further notice the Virtual Learning Bites are offered for free.

After registration you will get access to the material by the first day of the next calendar month. The close out video conference will be scheduled towards the end of that calendar month.

Which Virtual Learning Bites are available?


Italian flag

This is a technique to assess a credible probability for a future event to take place or not. It is part of the individual online course Risk Quantification and is often seen in the context of risk management but can also be used for other purposes. The core principles are the systematic use of evidence as well as debate and challenge.

Range assessment

This is a technique to estimate a range for a variable using expert elicitation, for example a cost. The central idea is that it is often not appropriate to characterize an uncertain variable by a single deterministic number. By quoting a range (or probability distribution) one can express the uncertainty in the estimate. It is part of the individual online course Risk Quantification and is often seen in the context of risk management but can also be used for other purposes.
