The Online Seminar

The seminar consists of two parts: the actual lectures and the exercises

The lectures are offered as a live stream via Vimeo.
The participant logs in with the password and can follow the presentations. As part of a chat function, the participant can ask questions to the speaker.

The exercises are done on a different chat platform. To do this, the participant receives an invitation to a Teams chat. Here the entire group of participants is divided into subgroups. These subgroups process the claims independently in the afternoons. The seminar leader will always “drop by” the individual groups and give assistance.

In the afternoon of the last day, all participants come together again in Teams and the groups present their results.

Important information: Please use the following link to check whether your computer's security settings allow access to the streaming platform If no film starts there, please talk to your IT department:
We recommend using headphones during the online seminar.
