ISIS learning platform

The ISIS learning platform (moodle) allows teachers to provide students with materials, upload exercises, and hold exams. The platform has a number of other communication and collaboration features as well as several practical applications to help you organize your teaching, such as defining groups or assigning topics.

Recording lectures

Recording large introductory lectures offers students an additional resource and benefits not only current but also future students in following semesters. Recorded videos are converted to internet-compatible formats and made available on TU Berlin’s video server, which is directly linked to the ISIS learning platform.

Accessible teaching

From preparing your teaching materials and recording videos, through to discussing academic adjustments, we recommend considering the needs of students with health impairments from the start. This allows you to more easily make any necessary changes and offers students a fair chance to participate in their studies.
