Life-long education and training in Vienna

The Wiener Volkshochschulen are the major educational institution in Vienna, offering adults educational and training opportunities for lifelong learning, while at the same time supporting pupils with learning aid and youth coaching in an effort to prevent the early departure from the educational process.

An accurate, intelligent and fast search is the key for a successful portal offering more than 13’000 courses and events. The Wiener Volkshochschulen achieve this goal by relying on our software Semanteer Search & Intelligence.

Intelligent auto-complete function including suggestions of results such as categories and courses. The courses’ recommendations are further enriched with information regarding the courses’ locations and duration periods.

Optimized search ranking – tailored to the needs of VHS, special boosting rules are applied taking into account booking status, starting dates, and other criteria of the courses.

Targeted facets and dynamic filters – which are both automatically but can also be manually applied – help users to – quickly and easily – find the courses that best suit their personal needs and preferences.
