SOMMERSEMESTER 2020

Der Kurs beginnt am 20. April. Im Moment müssen wir uns alle der Herausforderung des Coronavirus stellen.

Zu Beginn jeder Woche werden Vorlesungen hochgeladen und jede Woche am Mittwoch um 12:00 werde ich auf diejenigen warten, die Fragen zu den Vorlesungen oder anderen Fragen haben, die für den Kurs auf Zoom relevant sind,

Den Moodle-Kurs für diesen Vorlesungskurs finden Sie auf
