Project Presentation WiSe 2020/21 – Entwicklung von betrieblichen Informationssystemen

On Jan. 28, 14 teams presented the results of their project work as part of the event "Entwicklung von betrieblichen Informationssystemen". Due to the current Corona pandemic, the presentations took place exclusively digitally. The aim of the work was to plan and implement an own information system. Numerous groups developed ideas suitable for the current situation. During the final presentations, the participants were also able to vote for their favorite. Here, for example, the website "Wanderbuddy" was chosen, on which like-minded people can look for hiking routes and arrange to go hiking. Another team looked at a platform for "homeschooling," where teachers and students can organize together and upload and edit assignment sheets or assign grades. In addition, a help offering site was developed, through which those seeking and offering help in the Corona pandemic can find each other, for example, to go shopping for their neighbor.

We would like to thank the other 11 groups for their many other ideas and the detailed and great implementations!

On the photo you can see our virtual classroom and get an impression of how teaching currently takes place 😉
