According to the Rector’s instruction, distant education will be launched at Semmelweis University on 23rd March 2020. The original schedule will apply to all faculties and years in Central European Time. It is the responsibility of the educational departments to ensure that all the remaining educational material of the curriculum and planned exams that can be performed via distant learning are completed. Mid-term exams, tests and theses defenses will be performed using the “Zoom” platform that will gradually be integrated into the university’s e-learning system. Practical classes that cannot be taught online will have to be completed after the emergency situation has been revoked.
In addition to the information leaflet, detailed description of the technical specifications and the installation of Zoom are also available.
