liveSciences³ Online Exams

With liveScienes³, digital examination processes were organized across borders in order to facilitate student mobility and broaden mobility windows were academic calenders complicate physical exchange.

Different types of online exams were established, procedures described and technically implemented within the campus and learning management infrastructure; e.g.

  • Virtual oral exams

  • Open book @home exam
  • @home with ILIAS

As part of the liveSciences³ activities online exams scenarios were tested within the Life Science network. The partner universities took the role of mutual trust centers, which ensured identity control and responsibility for the examination environment.

At the University of Göttingen factsheets and guidelines for implementing different types of online exams were developed, including

  • Information about the procedures from the student’s perspective;
  • General work-flow for lectures;
  • Didactic recommendations and best practice examples and
  • Technical instructions and advices.

All information and experiences are embedded in the services and advisory offers of the team for Digital Learning & Teaching and summarized and listed at the Online examination website.
