Mattermost reloaded - exchange on digital teaching

The exchange channels on topics of digital teaching via the chat software Mattermost, which were made available for the first time in the summer semester 2020, were given a small facelift in cooperation with ITBH and ZLL in order to give (even) more space to the most pressing topics of digital teaching.

You can find the general introduction with a short explanation of how to use the channels at

We cordially invite you to engage in an exchange on a wide range of digital teaching topics, to share experiences and to provide assistance to each other.

The established Mattermost Team OnlineEduTUHH is and remains first and foremost an exchange channel for all those at TUHH who would like to discuss the development, design and challenges of digital teaching.

In addition to the Mattermost channels, you can also use the decision trees designed together with HOOU and Rechenzentrum as a practical selection aid for digital tools. Using three didactic questions (e.g. How do I want to support my students in actively engaging with teaching/learning content?), you can find out about suitable tools in each case.
