Lernraum and course enrolment
Lernraum is the online learning environment for TH Lübeck. Based on the Moodle software, it is the main information and communication medium for students. Access is only available for enrolled students. The key elements of the Lernraum are single course sites. For every module taught at TH Lübeck, there is a course site created in the Lernraum. On this course site, students can download the used presentation slides, upload their tasks, work together in groups on tasks and join discussion. The teacher posts deadlines and tasks in the course site and can send notification to all enrolled students.
In addition to the course sites for academic modules, there are also course sites created for organizational purposes. In general, there is no enrolment key required to enrol for these course sites. As mentioned in the chapter before, these organizational course sites could be departmental information (providing teaching and examination schedule), language center, IT services and student administration. Course sites are structured into different folders. Each department has a folder which contains folder for each study program. These study program specific folders contain the course sites for the single modules in this respective study program.
How to enroll in a course site
- To access the course sites, you have to enrol first. An overview of all course sites you are enrolled can be found on your personal dashboard.
- The enrolment can be done automatically or individually by the student. Automatic enrolment is done for organizational courses (e.g. departmental course sites, “TH Lübeck”, IT Services). This way students do not miss important information from these university units.
- The key to enrol for academic course sites is provided by the teacher during the first lecture or sent to the students by E-Mail from the department. To find the course, you search the course title in the search field in the Learnraum, enter the enrolement key and gain access to the main site of this course.
