Summer semester starts at FSU Jena...

Yesterday, the summer semester started and hey....it's really summer! I can't remember any summer semester start with such high temperatures. This semester, I have to give 2 lectures: 'Einführung in die Informatik II' (introduction to computer science II), which takes place mondays and fridays, and 'Informatik der digitalen Medien' (computer science and digital media), also on mondays. The later wil be recorded and will soon be available also for offline participation :)
Intersting thing to mention, this semester I try to maintain a blog for each of the lectures for providing additional information, reading materials, bibliographic notes, etc. You will find the two new blogs at
Of course I will comment on my experiences about managing lectures and courses with a blog.

Hi Harald!

Nice idea to have a blog for each course - maybe this is a second (beside the lectures) way to your students. And it is obviously more personal than anonymous eLearning portals or our various "course registration systems".

I'm looking forward to your experiences and wish you a good time for the upcoming weeks!

Hi Steffen,
thank you for the good wishes! I'm really excited about all the possibilities that you have with a blog instead to 'CAJ' or a standard course homepage. I will try out everything and I am very curious on how the students will react (if they react and of course when...)
