Digital Learning Kit
For the project Digital Learning Kit, interactive self-learning units are created on topics related to study organization, learning how to learn, time management and studying in the digital space. The aim is to support students in their learning and working processes and to develop their media skills.
Study spaces with access to the internet
To enable students to transition smoothly between face-to-face and online offerings on campus, more than 3,000 study spaces with internet access have been made available in university facilities. This allows students to continue to participate in digital formats.
To enable students who do not have the necessary equipent to participate in digital teaching and learning formats, a laptop donation campaign was started at the beginning of the Corona pandemic. Over 200 donated laptops were safely stripped of old data by the University of Jena, refurbished, and given away on a semester-by-semester basis.
