All lectures will remain digital for the rest of this semester
In order to ensure predictability for students and staff, UiO has decided that ordinary lectures and teaching will remain digital through the end of this semester.
- We do not know what situation we will find ourselves in this spring when it comes to the coronavirus epidemic. In order to ensure predictability for students and staff, we have decided that lectures and teaching will remain digital until the summer, said Arne Benjaminsen, University Director at the University of Oslo.
Thursday 2 April, the Centre for Learning, Innovation & Academic Development is arranging a webinar on how to activate and engage students in digital environments
Log on to watch recorded lectures
As of this week, all schedules are updated with information on digital teaching. Some have links to Canvas, others to Zoom or to recorded lectures. Students will receive a notification in their schedule, telling them to log on to see links with access-limited content, such as recorded lectures and other videos.
The notification can be found in all schedules for subject fields at all faculties, with the exception of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, where recorded lectures are openly available. All videos are also visible through the schedule in My Studies.
Respective faculties and institutes will provide information about exams and deadlines for submitting master theses.
