Internationally accessible “Understanding Solar Thermal Energy Conversion” course is designed to provide technical knowledge to interested parties with easy access. Transferring lessons learned and experiences acquired from mature markets to evolving markets, especially building up knowledge capacity about basics of technology is a way to speed up the qualified market penetration of solar thermal technologies in evolving markets. With this as motivation an online course was developed. The content structure of the course follows modern didactic, uses target group fitted new media and offers information on heat supply technologies as well as its non-technical aspects like social, economics and aesthetics. The course is certified by a German university and a German research organization based on certification model of Swissuni, and therefore can be easily counted towards thematically suitable university programs. The paper presents the innovative didactic approach of problem based learning as well as application-related, competence-oriented teaching, and describes the holistic contextual design of the course.
