Resources for remote learning

Further digital resources

If you want to use external resources, we recommend the following online resources:

  • Resources of the university library: The e-resources of the university library should primarily be used. You and your students can search for media from the library holdings either directly from Moodle using the u:search box (top right corner), or via u:search. A manual on how to integrate u:search is available here. While university buildings are closed due to SARS CoV-2 (Corona virus), the digital resources of the university library are available for remote access without restrictions via u:access.
  • Moreover, library staff keep on extending the library's holdings, especially by buying e-books. Should you need e-books for your courses, depending on availability these resources can be ordered right away. Please send your requests to your departmental library or use this form for acquisition suggestions.
  • Phaidra: Media repository of the University of Vienna. On Phaidra you can also archive files (no upload of temporary files!). You can find instructions here.
  • AlexanderStreetPress: Film database. Instructions for integration into Moodle via link can be found here.
  • iMooX: Massive Open Online Courses on diverse topics. Students can log in via EDU ID. To confirm that the course was completed, students could be asked to upload a course completion certificate in Moodle. 
  • OnCampus: Massive Open Online Courses on diverse topics, some free of charge.
  • OPEN vhb (Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern) Open online courses of the Bavarian universities and higher education institutes for applied sciences. Free of charge.
  • CC Search: Search for Creative Commons licensed materials.
