With the beginning of our work we have received many requests for specific questions about Moodle. Here you will find a collection of the resulting instructions. If your personal question cannot be answered, please contact us! We will help you quickly, individually, and with concrete implementation. In contrast to help found on the Internet, we can help specifically and even take over the implementation for you.

Exam.UP is a platform of the University of Potsdam where exams can be handled. It stores students' interim results and is therefore a secure and reliable platform. In essence, Exam.UP is another Moodle instance, with slightly different usage rights. Taking an online exam, like taking a face-to-face exam, requires a great deal of planning and security. Here we provide not only a complete checklist but also specific instructions in response to questions we have been asked in the e-assessment context. If you have any questions or requests, please do not hesitate to contact us.
|Click here for the checklist Checkliste (.pdf), which clearly summarizes all the important steps from planning to implementation to backup!|
You want to personalize the checklist? You can easily edit this .odt Version! (The Checklist is at the moment only in german available)
