Distance Learning @ TU Wien

We are currently facing a major challenge and we would like to thank you for your commitment!

The Distance Learning Team has been working intensly over the past few days to develop some concepts to support you as good as possible in getting your course into a suitable Distance Learning format.

Due to the huge amount of inquiries, we must also point out the new deadlines, that we can comply with the security requirements (reports are only accepted via distancelearning@tuwien.ac.at, opens an external URL in a new window):

  • In the future, room and recording requirements must be reported by Friday 12:00 noon for the upcoming week at the latest (reports after the deadline can not be granted).

Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the recommendations below:

  • Act as asynchronously as much as possible
  • "Keep it short!" E-learning  content should always be prepared briefly an in small bites.

If you have any questions about distance learning or support for the implementation of your own course, please contact distancelearning@tuwien.ac.at at any time!
