Prevention of corona infections in the classroom

Please note the current regulations specified by the WWU according to the Corona Protection Ordinance, which may change in the course of the semester. University of Münster: Information on the corona virus

Course Registration
In good time before the start of the course programme (approx. one week before) there is the possibility of online registration, to which we will inform you by e-mail. The registration for the courses is free, but binding. It is possible to cancel the course online up to 48 hours before the course date.

Waiting Lists
All courses are limited to 20 up to 26 participants in order to ensure the greatest possible learning success. If the places are already occupied, you can register on a waiting list and will be notified when places become available again. In this case, however, a new registration is required.

Free Course Places
On our website all currently available free course places will be published. In addition, all students who are registered on the waiting list for the respective course topic will be informed by e-mail about available course places.

In order to give other students the opportunity to move up, we ask you to cancel your registration in good time. We only accept online cancellations via "Meine WWU IT-Kurse" (My WWU IT Courses) if they take place 48 hours before the start of the course. By cancelling the registration, the course place will be released immediately for other interested parties to register. Since all courses are offered regularly, you can participate at a later date. For this you have to register again. If you do not cancel your registration and do not appear repeatedly on course dates, you will be excluded from using the course programme for a period of six months.

Missed Courses
As soon as you miss a course for the third time within 12 months, you will be blocked from registering for the course. The block is then valid for six months and includes the exclusion from the course registration as well as the deletion from the participant lists of the following courses. We will inform you by email about any missed date. In addition, you have the possibility to view a current overview of missed courses in "My WWU IT Courses" at any time. If you are unable to attend the course, please take the opportunity to unsubscribe online! In this way you give others the chance to move up. We have long waiting lists for most course topics. Therefore, in the interest of fairness, we must exclude from the use of the courses those persons who repeatedly do not appear on dates and thus deprive others of the opportunity to participate.

Training materials
All training and exercise materials can be found on WWU's Learnweb, in the WWU IT course area. The materials are also linked through our web pages. Learnweb courses for most training are open to all WWU employees. You will only be required to enter an additional password when enrolling if you are informed of this in writing by the instructor.

Licenses and computer workplaces
We provide all participants with a computer workstation equipped with the relevant software and training materials. It is not possible to take part with one's own device.

Attendance Certificates
At the end of the course, we will provide all participants with a certificate of attendance in the personal course administration area "My WWU IT Courses" for download (for a maximum of 24 months). The prerequisite for this is the presence of the participant during the entire course as confirmed by the lecturer. For courses lasting several days, all dates must be attended in order to receive a certificate of attendance. The course place expires if you are not present at the first course date. Participation from the second date is not possible.

Credit Points
No, participation in software training courses cannot be credited as academic achievement.
