How is the Academy content repository structured?2021-10-19T10:45:09+02:00

Both the lecturers and all students have access to the same database. The structure of the database is organized in the following manner:

Lecturers have access to two separate areas or folder groups: Teacher and Example. The Teacher area is limited in terms of access and cannot be seen by the other participants, whereas the Example area is more flexible and can be used for sharing content between the professor and the students (e.g. useful for examples, assignments, etc.).

Students on the other hand, only have one area – consisting of their group folder. A group can consist of one or more students. A student cannot see the folder of another student group.

Student groups can be used for assignments (e.g. a single student per group) or for collaboration (more students in one group). A student can also be a member of several groups.

What is on offer in terms of research and research projects?2021-03-16T16:37:21+01:00
