Welcome to Space Informatics!
This news contains important information such as the planned course structure.
Schedule & Course Format
Our course is planned as a four week (full-time) block course from September 7 to October 2.
- The lectures will mostly consist of recorded videos published in our dCMS. Whenever there are live lectures, they will be announced beforehand. Live lectures will be held in Zoom (and might or might not be recorded).
- In addition, there will be live events called “Space Q&A”. There, the lecturers will briefly recap the covered materials and then offer you the possibility to ask questions and initiate discussions. We will likely use Zoom for this, too.
- To further support you in studying the course contents, there will be tutorials scheduled. This is the place where various tyes of exercises are discussed.
- Weekdays without tutorials will instead feature office hours. There, you can reach out to our tutors and get help with exercises and the projects. Both, the tutorials and office hours, will take place on Discord.
- The course comprises three practical projects. You will be allowed to work on these in groups of two students.
More details will be provided in the first introductory lecture on Monday, September 7, at 14:15. This live-event will take place on Zoom and will be announced in a separate news. Please have a look at the dCMS Calendar for an overview of the precise schedule.
Physical Presence on Campus?
It will be possible to attend the course (i.e. lectures and tutorials), and to be admitted to the final exam from remote. Note, however, that a written exam is scheduled to take place on campus. We are planning to have it in the first week of the upcoming lecture period, i.e. around November 3. The details are not fixed yet and will be discussed in the first introductory lecture.
Feel free to contact us if you have any more questions.
