Campus Management

The Campus Management Section supports all phases of the Academic Lifecycle with integrated IT systems. The administration steps range from the management of applications for places of study to course and examination administration to the issuance of certificates. It provides, furthermore, technical solutions for related areas such as e-learning, evaluation or accreditation.

Campus Management is responsible for the operation, administration and further development of the IT systems required to support these (administrative) processes. Thus guiding all relevant coordination and decision-making processes from the outset, and ensuring the technical feasibility of the decisions taken and facilitating the planning of necessary resources.

Campus Management supports the systems’ users and offers training courses and supporting material (user guides, etc). Decision-making processes within the university are supported by various types of evaluations and statistics.

Moodle

With the Moodle learning management system, the Campus Management Section is putting a teaching and learning platform that supports not only the organisation of courses and projects, but also the communication among participants, as well as learning itself at the disposal of the University's lecturers and students. Thus, in Moodle classrooms are ready for courses and projects, whose elements can be used in courses.

Employees and teachers of Leuphana are cordially invited to test and use Moodle. The Campus Management Section will be happy to set up a (test) course for this purpose. In addition, the Campus Management Section also offers personal advice to support lecturers in designing courses and integrating e-learning content into a didactically useful learning scenario.

Evasys

EvaSys is a web-based software for the automatic evaluation of questionnaires in the context of the quality management of educational institutions. In addition, the system carries out paper-based, web-based and hybrid surveys as well as multimodal surveys, incorporating the whole process from the questionnaires’ design to the mass control of survey procedures.

At Leuphana, the system is mainly used for student research projects and surveys and occasionally in teaching.
