Information on Online Teaching of the DSN Group During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Our plan, as of 01.04.2020, is to offer all courses of the DSN research group in digital form. Information on the digital offers (streaming, recordings, slide material and discussion platforms) can be found in the respective ILIAS courses (see below). Registrations for labs and seminars take place via the Wiwi-Portal or via mail. The accepted participants will then be added to the ILIAS course. The ILIAS courses of the lectures can be entered without password during the first weeks of lectures.

Oral exams for "Access Control Systems" and "Decentralized Systems" are available in September and October (contact Ms. Hopprich for scheduling). The second written exam for "IT Security Management" will take place on 27.07. in the "Tulla-Hörsaal" (see news/table below).

We wish you, despite the pandemic, a successful semester and, under these unusual circumstances, a good time in your studies.
