Excellence MOOCs at TU Graz

As part of the digitalization projects of the Ministry, the MOOC platform "iMooX" at Graz University of Technology will be expanded to become a joint platform for all Austrian universities. So-called "Excellence MOOCs" are being produced at Graz University of Technology within the framework of Digital TU Graz Marketplace. These will represent the outstanding research at TU Graz in teaching. The content will be made accessible, visible, and usable worldwide in English. The resulting scaling of knowledge will strengthen research collaborations and research-led teaching on iMooX for you, for everyone.


E-Assessment at TU Graz

The already existing services for written online examinations (in TeachCenter or TeachCenter Exam) will temporarily be supplemented by another examination environment beginning with the summer semester 2021: the KnowledgeCheckR. The students are photographed during the exam, the AI-based system analyses these photos for abnormalities and automatically forwards them to the examiners. KnowledgeCheckR is directly connected to TC Exam, which is used for user management as usual.
