The students who have signed on to a sub course room are redirected to the main course room and listed in separate participant lists. The dates of the course rooms are also listed separately in the calendar/course info section. Students only see the dates of the main course room and the sub course room for which they have signed on to in CAMPUS-Office.

Course rooms are accessible and fully functionable for 3 semesters.

After 10 semesters, the course rooms and all their content will be deleted.
Course rooms are currently bound to events in CAMPUS and their allocation to semesters. Course rooms which are not bound to semesters are in the planning stage. They will be available in SS 2016 at the earliest.
