Covid-19 has forced students and teachers to move from lecture halls to the digital space. To cope with the fact that not all practical courses could be transitioned to a fully virtually format, the Chair for Information Systems successfully launched a new digital practical course in cooperation with ServiceNow in the summer term 2020. The course comprised a virtual training period and a virtual development period with real-world industry challenges. Since the feedback from students and industry partners was overwhelmingly positive, we are pleased to continue the practical course in the future.
Students, industry partners, ServiceNow, and the Chair have shared their experience in the following blog-post [German only]: https://blog.servicenow.de/2020/10/12/studi-kreativitaet-trifft-auf-reale-herausforderungen-und-state-of-the-art-tooling/
