Benötigte/Empfehlenswerte Vorkenntnisse[edit]

none, however there is a practical part to the course TU Wien:Assistive Systems UE (Mayer, Panek), but it is not mandatory.


I was not in the lectures.

The lecture content is quite interesting, so as the links in the slides, unfortunately, the lecturers were mostly reading the slides and only giving comments on details which made the whole presentation rather boring.

Prüfung, Benotung[edit]

WS2015/16: Written exam - 10 questions - 60 minutes. There was and exam in April, where only 1 person participated. Therefore, very uncomplicated and the questions were easy to answer. The exam could be finished after 20 minutes. They ask for specific enumerations and no textual descriptions in detail. It was explicitly mentioned that short answers are preferred.

WS2017/18: Written exam - 10 questions - 30 minutes.

WS2020/21: Written exam - 12 questions - ~50 minutes. The exam was held via zoom, the camera had to be placed so that the paper and hands are visible, with audio on and allowing recording. The questions were available for download after the start of the exam. This sheet could be printed and filled out, scanned and uploaded in Tuwel. One could also write the answers on a blank sheet of paper.

Without visiting the lecture, it is enough to study 3 intensively. Many things are repetitive and obvious.
