Do you have questions about the use of Mahara, Moodle, Citavi or formatting of term papers and other homework? Then contact our e-learning consultants: 


  • GERMAN: Das Formatieren von schriftlichen Arbeiten mit Word • 16.01.2019 • 10:00 - 13:00 Uhr • Room t.b.a

    Microsoft Word offers a wide variety of ways to format text. Often, however, it takes a lot of time to implement the formatting you want, because users do not exactly know where and how to find the desired options within the program. In this workshop, the most common ways to format written work whilst studying are discussed and tested: i.a. Format page counts, create an automatic table of contents and an illustration directory, work with stylesheets, format an attachment. Feel free to ask your own questions beforehand to the workshop hosts:

  • GERMAN: Vom Suchen und Verwalten wissenschaftlicher Literatur mit Citavi • 23.01.2019 • 10:00 - 13:00 Uhr • Room: t.b.a
    This is about the convenient handling of the literature management program Citavi. Citavi is ideal for structuring scientific literature, organizing knowledge and writing scientific papers. Viadrina provides its students and employees with a free campus license. In the workshop, the participants learn the most important tools of the program and try them out, using writing exercises. Participants are welcome to structure a real writing project in the workshop. For this they should bring along a selection of literature as well as a bibliography.

Feel free to ask your own questions beforehand to the workshop hosts:

Why should students use e-tools?

  • New motivation for content development: study materials in an interactive and multimedia format
  • Support in the reflection and documentation of the self-directed, individual learning processes, eg. with Mahara E-Portfolios
  • Mostly time- and location-independent studying; concentrated attention through self-authored time management/time division
  • Collaborative working techniques in forums and Wikis, self-assessment structures, simulations, and video conferencing
  • Better assess your own knowledge and skills and recognize deficits through self-assessments
  • Organization of the study: Simplified group and project work through collaborative tools such as Etherpad, videoconferencing tools, blogs, e-portfolios, Wikis, voting activities and discussion forums
  • Studying is also possible in case of local absence (timetable collisions, semester abroad, illness, parental leave etc.)
