Administration of online exams

Using the tools available at WU, you can administrate your exams online:

  • Oral online exams can be conducted using Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
  • Written online exams can be created and edited via MyLEARN. You have the option to use different exam formats:
    • Remote-Take-Home Exam
    • Online exams with calculations and graphs
    • Online exams with closed and/or open questions

If you plan an online exam you can enter the requited information directly at the respective exam date in Rooms.

  1. At the respective exam date, select as room category "online event" and use the button "P" for examination.
  2. Click the button "Save". You will get the following note: "You need to provide further information about your exam/s before you can save. Please use 'Enter further information' below".
  3. Give information about the following for each exam date:
    • Online exam in course environment OR online exam in online exam environment
    • Language: German OR English
    • Online supervision required
  4. Save the entries and close the entry field.
  5. After that, you can finalise the booking for the selected exam dates with "Book".


You can decide whether you want to hold your online exam in the regular course environment or in a separate online examination environment. A separate exam environment allows for online proctoring, but it is necessary to add your students first.
