Library+ Education support

As a teacher you often face situations for which the library can offer services and tools. Think about making students aware of reliable resources on the internet, inviting your students to actively participate during your lecture via an audience response tool or help them with academic writing and searching skills when writing their theses.  

The library hosts the digital learning environment, which allows you to organise your courses, giving students access to all course materials, referring to academic publications, presentations, videos, and assignments. In this environment you can also activate plagiarism checks, virtual classroom sessions or organise peer feedback. As from next year this will also include video services (uploading and offering videos).

Visit our Library+ Teacher portal for a complete overview. You might want to add this portal to your favorites/bookmarks.
