Every RWTH-Member has access to L²P via his/her TIM-Account. Your TIM-Username is your initials followed by a 6-digit sequence (For example: ab123456)
As a student at RWTH, you sign up to your courses via RWTHonline. After having been assigned to your course, you automatically get access to the corresponding course room and its materials, exercises etc. The date of assignment can be found on the RWTHonline page.
If you cannot sign up via RWTHonline, please contact the lecturers of the course and ask them to add you directly to the course room. If you are external/guest, lecturers can send you an invitation via email that allows you to create yourself a TIM account and get access to the course room in question.
If you are using Internet Explorer, please add the Domain „CAMPUS\" in front of your TIM-Account, e.g. instead of ab123456 now CAMPUS\ab123456.
You can reset your password in the Selfservice Please follow these steps:
If you are using iOS 7.0.0 or iOS 8.0.0, please perform a software update. There are known errors, which make a login to L²P impossible. These errors were fixed with versions 7.0.3 and 8.0.2 respectively.
Similar to the Internet Explorer for desktopPCs and Surface tablets you have to specify the domain "CAMPUS\”. Please write CAMPUS\ in front of your credentials, e.g. CAMPUS\ab123456, or enter CAMPUS at "Domain"s.
When you are trying to log in to L²P with Safari on an iPad / iPhone, your browser may ask you for your login details repeatedly. This usually happens on mobile connections (3G, 4G, LTE, …) only. Please use Chrome as a browser instead. When connecting via WLAN (eduroam, Wifi at home, …) this error should not occur.
The mobile view of L²P is displayed automatically when you are accessing L²P with a mobile device. Please also pay attention to the section How do I sign in with….
For further information, please contact Mr. Vlatko Lukarov.
The L²P-APIs allow you to develop your own (mobile) apps expanding the functionality of L²P. You will receive a client-ID allowing you to get the needed files and information out of L²P. Before publishing your app, you have to show the data protection officer what personal data you are processing and get his approval. Your app has to be free of charge. For further information, please contact Mr. Vlatko Lukarov.
The RWTH App offers access to news, announcements, learning materials and the shared documents in L²P. In addition, lecturers can use the RWTH App-function Quiz2go for electronic self-tests. Students can use these to check their skill level independently and offline. The RWTH App is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
The Android-App MyL2P was designed by RWTH-students in a programming project. It offers nearly full access to the functions of L²P. It is linked in the third party developers section of the L²P App-Store.
Usually, you’ll get an error message when trying to download a file in Chrome by simply clicking on the file. Press and hold the link to the file until a menu opens. Choose Save link as… here. Your document should be loading flawlessly now.
Your L²P is bound to your TIM account, so your L²P contact email address is your TIM email address. You can change your E-Mail-adress in SelfService. The change affects your whole TIM account. There is no way to change your L²P email address only.
Course rooms are accessible and fully functionable for 3 semesters. After that, the course room is set to a read-only state, i.e. you can only read and download the existing content but you cannot upload new content or add users. After 10 semesters, the course rooms and all their content will be deleted.
First, please make sure there is a corresponding course room to your course. You’ll find the course room linked in the RWTHonline course data under further information. Please also check if you have signed on for the right course. Sometimes there are several entries for one course. Please finally check in RWTHonline if you have already been assigned to the course as for being booked into the course room automatically you need to sign on for the course and then be assigned to it by the lecturers. You can find the assignment date in the RWTHonline course dates. Please note that at the start of the semester, because of high traffic, it may take longer for your bookings to be displayed in your course overview.
If the period for signing on to a course has already ended, or other matters (e.g. wrong study path) make it impossible to register for a course in RWTHonline, please directly contact the lecturers of the course and kindly ask them to add you to their course.
If this message is shown to you, the managers haven’t opened the course room yet for students. For more information please contact your lecturers.
Sometimes the NTLM Authentication Protocol will not work properly in Firefox/Ice Weasel/Pale Moon on UNIX based OS (Arch Linux, Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, etc).
The effects are that users cannot log in into the L²P platform, because the underlying infrastructure uses NTLM v2 as authentication protocol.
Here are three simple steps how one can fix this problem.
First Open Firefox and type about:config in the url bar. Agree that you will be careful and accept the risks.
In the search bar, type NTLM and you will receive the following results:
After this with double-click change the following preferences (the ones in bold):
If you want to use single-sign on (user credentials for the local OS and the credentials for L²P are the same (something we advise against)):
You can set the trusted URIs to www3.elearning.rwth-aachen.de
After this close the browser, and try again to log in on L²P.
A simple way to synchronize your learning materials with your computer and use them offline is the desktopsoftware Sync-my-L2P. It saves all new learning materials with a single click. Sync-my-L2P has been developed by a former RWTH-student and is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.
If you want your cache deleted automatically, you can do so. Please mind that errors may occur on other pages.
In case the problem still occurs, contact the L²P-Support.
The language of the course room is chosen by the lecturer while creating the course room. This will only impact the date format. The navigation uses the default browser language set by the users themselves. Here are instructions on how to change the language in the most common browsers:Google ChromeMozilla FirefoxInternet ExplorerSafari
If you have been identified as the lecturer of a course in the course data in RWTHonline, you’ll be booked automatically into the course room as a Manager. For this to work your CAMPUS directory entry needs to be connected with your TIM account. If this linkage doesn’t exist yet, you can link your accounts through the CAMPUS roll organisation unit. You can find further information about the CAMPUS-TIM linkage and instructions on how to link those on the pages of the IT Center.
Course rooms can be aggregated by the L²P administrator. One course room is assigned as the main course room. Only this one is accessible. The other linked sub course rooms are not accessible. 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 RWTHonline. You can read more in the tutorial Lernräume aggregieren.
Course rooms can only be deleted by the L²P administrator. Please contact the L²P-Support.
The integration of third party systems into specific course rooms is possible. For more information on this topic, please contact Mr. Vlatko Lukarov.
It is possible to make the sectors calendar, announcements, media library, learning materials and hyperlinks globally and anonymously accessible. For more information please contact the L²P-Support.
The password for a generic account (15ws-xxxxx) cannot be reset. If you have forgotten the password for this account and need to administrate your course room, please contact the L²P-Support.
To get access to L²P you need a TIM account. RWTH members get it in the process of matriculation/employment. Externals (guest speakers, external experts, pupils etc.) can create a TIM-account, if you send them an invitation to your course room.
While creating your course room, you can choose whether you want an English or a German course room. This decision will only impact the date format. The navigation language uses the default browser language set by the users.
The course rooms in the new L²P provide a media library. Here you can save pictures, audio and video. Videos can be uploaded to the library, linked or embedded from streaming sites like YouTube or Vimeo. They can also be played on the page by an embedded player. To make sure that your video can be played on every device, we recommend you to upload your video to a streaming page and embed it. Please make sure that you do not upload copyrighted material. In case you want to upload your videos to the media library, notice the max. file size of 250MB. You have a total of 4GB of space (expanded max. 10 GB). If you want to share big videos or many videos, you should upload them externally and link or embed them. Please also notice the manual on how to upload pictures, videos and audio files.
Similar to the old system, you can import most of the content of your old course rooms. Exceptions are emails, surveys, assignments and free text. Discussions can be imported but without the names of the posters. To import content from old course rooms open the settings in the new course room, click “import” in the menu bar, navigate to the course room from which you want to import, and finally choose the modules you want to import. Etests have to be imported seperately in the etest module itself. You can export the question pool and import it in the new new course room or import completetests together with the questions but without user data.
The available space for your course room is displayed in the settings. You have 4 GB, which can be expanded to 10 GB on request.
The maximum file size is 250 MB.
