CORONA: Virtualization of teaching
University of Technology has set up a crisis management team to define and initiate all necessary measures. One of the measures - in coordination with the State Rectors' Conference and the responsible ministry - is to postpone the start of classroom teaching until May 4 at the earliest. Nevertheless, the semester will begin as usual at the beginning of April and it is the declared aim to offer teaching formats as early as possible where the presence of teachers and students is not necessary. Rectorate, administration, crisis management team and the e-learning team of the University Computer Centre, TU4U, digital higher education and LiT+ are working on improving the general conditions for colleagues.
