All digital introduction meetings will take place in Webex. For participation in the courses you need MS Teams. For both systems (Webex and MS Teams) you find a guide of our IT Service Centre enclosed. Please read the information carefully and familiarize yourself with the procedures.
We recommend a laptop or PC for participation in video conferences during the teaching and the Master Introduction Days. Participation with mobile devices (Smartphone / Tablet) is of course possible but not optimal, because not all functions of the web software are available.
Even so, if you want to try to use a smartphone or tablet for the webex meeting on Monday, please install the Webex App well ahead.
A camera and a microphone are especially important for the mentoring groups on Thursday so that you can get to know the other students. This will make the start of your studies easier. In order to have a better communication and to avoid acoustic feedback, we also recommend the use of headphones or a headset.
