General Information About Studying

You can find important information about the study program for Business Informatics on this website. However, we recommend you, to attend the introductory courses for the studies of Business Informatics at the beginning of the semester. They usually take place on the first day of classes of each semester (generally Mondays).

Our Learning Platforms

Course material for the lectures is provided on three different learning platforms, the IWi-Moodle, the Uni-Moodle and the StudIP of the University of Göttingen. In the long term, the IWi-Moodle will be replaced by the Uni-Moodle.

 

You can sign in the IWi-Moodle and the Uni-Moodle with your UdS-Studentenkennung (student-ID, provided by the Saarland University). To get access to the StudIP-Platform, you need to register for the Winfoline-Program. Currently, Winfoline classes and lectures are offered via the StudIP. The lectures Wirtschaftsinformatik 1-3 (Business Informatics 1-3) can be found on the Uni-Moodle. Access to remaining classes is given on the IWi-Moodle.
