course concept

The module eTutoring is a course in the optional area of the RUB. In the summer semester 2020, it was conducted online. The 3 accompanying colloquia of the module were particularly affected. In these, the eTutors were given smaller eLearning tasks. One meeting took place synchronously via Zoom. In this colloquium, the students presented their projects.
