Moodle is the central learning management system of the HWR Berlin and offers numerous web-based e-learning functions. Lecturers and students of all five departments and the institutes can enter their courses in the form of digital course rooms and provide and use materials and activities there.
In order to make face-to-face teaching possible, at least in part and not only in the very largest rooms, despite spatial restrictions and distance regulations, the technical prerequisites for teaching in the “blended classroom” are being created at the HWR Berlin.
Alongside e-learning and e-teaching, e-assessment is a pillar of electronic teaching content (Handke and Schäfer 2012). E-assessment means nothing more than electronic testing. The only difference is that the “E” is shorter, sounds more modern, and is more “digitalized”.
