Below we present the most important information about distance learning: resources and plans of WULS-SGGW and links to external solutions.
Resources of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences
- Currently at the University we mainly have the Moodle platform: https://e.sggw.pl administered by the Faculty of Applied Informatics and Mathematics / Institute of Technical Informatics. In the system, everyone assumes an account for themselves, and higher rights – to be obtained from the administrator.
- The Moodle system is also an authentication tool used by the Big Blue Button system, allowing for teleconferences, sharing the screen and application windows in an interactive mode.
- University cloud disk IIT
- As part of the POWER project, a centralized Microsoft Teams service for employees and students was launched at SGGW. It greatly facilitates communication and enables more efficient organization of remote activities.
- The SGGW TV team can support the recording of lectures to be posted on the YouTube platform as soon as possible.
Publicly available IT tools supporting distance learning
Conference systems also have various possibilities of sharing screens, windows, applications, cooperation, etc. They are often used to organize lectures and other online classes.
