Online classes on the e-learning Kampus platform
For academic teachers
Following UW Rector’s Ordinance no. 206 of 7th September 2020 and Rectors’s Ordinance no. 9 of 18th January 2020 the university lectures, seminars and classes are going to be run online in the academic year 2020/21. The academic teachers are invited to make use of the services and tools available under GSuite and the general university e-learning Kampus platform.
- provide students with access to didactic materials (files, links, etc)
- make announcements
- run discussion forums
- test students’ knowledge with closed- and open-ended tasks.
Since the Kampus platforms are synchronized with USOS, the academic teachers may easily authorize students into their e-classes and give them access to the e-course content within just a few clicks. Neither e-teachers nor students have to create extra accounts – it is enough to log in the platform using one’s CAS account the way they enter USOS (PESEL and password).
The Elearning website collects information about Kampus 1 and Kampus 2 classes as well as exams on Kampus Exams in one place, and makes it easy to navigate between platforms.
The Digital Competence Centre UW provides both full technical maintenance of the Kampus platforms and support for academic e-teachers offering them:
- instructional e-courses on how to use the platform (log in with one’s CAS account)
- helpdesk: firstname.lastname@example.org (Mon-Fri 8:00-16:00); more about DCC helpdesk
- trainings on the use of the Kampus platform, organized within the University’s Integrated Development Programme (ZIP) (current trainings offer and enrolments are available at Kampus-pracownik; UW faculties and units may request dedicated trainings via email@example.com)
The Digital Competence Centre UW also administers other e-learning services connected with online education. Visit Our Services
How to launch online classes on the Kampus platform?
Request a course here:
To enter the request form, log into the platform using the USOS login (PESEL number) and password.
Wait for the information that your course has been prepared for you. It will take us no longer than 3 weekdays. We prepare courses in the order received. You will be informed by email that your course is ready.
You are the only person who will get access to the course – you decide when you add materials and admit students to the course.
Use the E-teacher’s Guide. You will find a lot of information about using the platform there. You need to log into the platform to get to the Guide. Enter the link below and click on “Enrol me”.
If you have any problems/queries, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will help you as quickly as possible. Sending the direct link to the course makes it easier for us to answer your question, which means that if you provide a link, you will get the answer more quickly.
Attention! If you have had the e-classes on the Kampus platform last semester and you want to use your materials again in the new academic year, you need to request an e-class again using the request form and choosing the option “I wish to have my existing course copied”. The old course with your materials is going to be copied then with neither students nor their posts/assignments/grades and what you get is a new e-class with “old” materials. All the previous course gets archived – students’ data, their work and grades. Thanks to that, it is possible to get access to the history of the e-classes if necessary.
Online final tests/assignments and exams
In accordance with the Rector’s Order nr 206 of 7 September 2020 on the online final tests/assignments (zaliczenia) and exams should take place either on the Kampus platform for exams (Kampus-egzaminy) for written tasks or GSuite set (for oral tasks). The updated exam procedure used for exams will be presented before the winter exam session 2020/2021.
Other recommended tools that might be used for online classes at the University of Warsaw:
- an online lecture or meeting: Google Meet available in the Google set for the UW staff. It also allows you to record your classes. You can also use MS Teams and Zoom.
- meetings on live chat: Google Chat available in the Google set for the UW Staff.
- sharing files with didactic materials, eg. by email or on cloud discs such as Google Disc available in the Google set for the UW Staff.
If you decide to use external services make sure you pay attention to the need to protect personal data of the UW students and staff.
Regularly monitor the news published on the website of your department.
Check your mails regularly – also Spam, Offers, etc. Use the mailbox with the UW domain – it is obligatory for students in accordance with the Study Regulations. Add the servers and senders from UW to the list of safe senders. Mark the emails from UW as non-spam emails.
Make sure your data provided in USOS are relevant. It is really important to monitor if you get signed to the classes you are expected to attend – do not put it away for most convenient time! University systems such as Kampus platform is integrated with USOS – e.g. the lists of students are sent form USOS to the Kampus platform, so if you are not on the list, you will not get to the e-course on the platform either.
If your classes are supposed to be an e-course on the Kampus platform, log into the platform following the instructions. To meet other students online you may use Google Meet or Google Chat.
Follow the news and changes on your courses and study in accordance with the instructions from your teachers.
