Coronavirus - Update: Details on courses and examinations

Further details on teaching and examination due to current regulations and resolutions

The current situation makes reliable planning of the semester - courses and examinations - considerably more difficult. The longer-term development of the infection figures cannot be reliably predicted, but a renewed increase can be expected. The TU Wien has a responsibility towards its lecturers and students, therefore the Rectorate decided that online substitutable teaching including examinations should be converted into distance learning formats for the winter semester 2020 .

Winter semester 2020

This was not an easy decision to make, but we have to make it possible for students to complete their studies under these conditions, and currently there is no other option. In order to make the changeover as easy as possible, a comprehensive support strategy for the adaptation of teaching and examinations to online formats has been developed. The Distance Learning Team of TU Wien has been implementing this strategy since the beginning of the lockdown, especially in the area of online examinations.

The Dean of Studies, teachers and also the Studability Mailbox have received feedback from students that the necessary infrastructure for taking online exams is not available. In order not to exclude anybody from the possibility of taking exams, it was therefore decided to support students with additional measures and to provide them with a place in a room at TU Wien where they can take their online exams. The following process was developed for this purpose:

  • If students are unable to take the online examination in the prescribed form, they should report this to the examiner with a problem description
  • The examiner decides whether the examination can be carried out in parallel in one room at TU Wien. The on-site supervision is to be organised by the examiner.
  • The examiner shall inform zllrm @ of the room requirements and the reasons for the examination
  • The central teaching and learning room management provides an appropriate room
  • Students are requested by the LVA management to send their application for an on-site examination place, including the reasons, to distancelearning @
