Databases and Information Systems: Teaching

The teaching activities contribute mainly to the Bachelor/Master Studies in Applied Computer Science; also students in Business Informatics/Information Systems, Mathematics etc. attend the lectures. From 2005-2008, advanced lectures have also been transmitted to TU Clausthal.

General Information on DBIS teaching:

  • In summer term 2020 and winter term 2020/21, all DBIS courses took place as live online courses (see below for detailed information). In most cases, we did live teaching with broadcasting and possible interaction. Usually, the recordings have been provided.
    For summer term 2021, we have been informed that it is not allowed to reuse the live recordings from last year because potentially personal data of participants might be displayed.
    As there must be progress towards reusable recordings, we have to reduce live teaching in ST 2021. Instead, the old recordings will have to be carefully cleaned, and partially re-done, but mostly not with live recordings again.
    See the DBIS Virtual Teaching page for details.
  • All relevant information about the lectures can be found at this Website ("the blue pages"). By this, our materials are publicly available to everybody.
    Note especially, that we do not follow the diverse forums in StupID (these are a severe misdesign - following each of them would require a lot of time. For contacting the teaching persons, e-Mail has been invented in the early 1970s).
  • There is no official enrolment for DBIS lectures (only for seminars and labs). Students may freely decide to attend the lecture. For the lectures, the provided exercises are also not mandatory (both is not laziness on our side, but the way I understand academic education, and how studying was organized at Karlsruhe University when I studied there years ago). Only at the end, for the exams, there is a registration (with FlexNow as far as possible).
