The decision taken by the University at a central level in the beginning of September seems to roll over to 2021. This implies that we will continue with our hybrid format, until further notice, with both online teaching and campus activities. Please check each course sites on Canvas for more details when it comes to the teaching elements within each course.


The digital format may be as follows:

  • Lectures on campus: There will be some campus activities for small student groups during the first part of the autumn (regular lectures, seminars, exercises etc.).  Please keep a social distance during these events.  
  • On-line lectures: The format may differ across courses, but most lectures consists of pre-prepared videos and presentations published on Canvas. 
  • On-line chats: The lack of interactions during pre-prepared lecture will be redressed by “on-line office-hours” and/or Q&As so that students could communicate directly with the lecturer.  
  • On-line material: Notes and slides will be published on Canvas. 
  • Group exercises: Assignments are published as usual on Canvas. Students will thereafter be able to establish chat-rooms (using Canvas or Zoom) and they could also use Google docs in order to facilitate group assignments (see links below). 
  • Computer exercises: Lecturers and/or teaching assistants may establish an on-line helpdesk (chat-room) and/or stream the exercise through Zoom/Canvas.
