Spring Semester 2022 without certificate nor mask carrying obligation
With the start of the spring semester 2022, face-to-face teaching and examinations will take place without compulsory certificates and masks. There are also no requirements regarding the spacing of seats; the rooms can be occupied at their normal capacity.
Masks can still be worn on a voluntary basis.
The University of Basel continues to recommend that all university staff be vaccinated. Students who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons or for whom the vaccination effect is reduced should contact the Dean of Studies of their faculty.
Furthermore, it is possible to offer parts of the lessons digitally (online, blended or hybrid). Information, instructions and current course offers can be found under "Information & Downloads".
Recommendations for the implementation of face-to-face teaching scenarios with the inclusion of online participants can be found on this website.
Exams and Assessments
The certificate requirement is also waived for examinations.
Exams at the end of the semester will take place in the form announced in the course catalog.
ADAM for online exams now also with larger groups
- Online exams on ADAM are now also possible with larger groups (up to 300 students) under certain conditions. You can find the details in the updated Tales Online Exams and Assessments and on the intranet page (VPN needed) Examinations on ADAM.

EvaExam Online for simultanous online exams with randomised multiple choice questions
- EvaExam is still available as a tool for examinations. EvaExam Online is best used for large cohorts (several hundred students) who simultaneously start, complete and upload a multiple choice exam.
- Updated information about online exams with EvaExam can also be found in the updated Tales Online Exams and Assessments.
Conducting oral exams via video conference
The video content management system Panopto enables the recording and/or live streaming (webcast) of courses with less interactivity as well as management and editing of the recordings (editing, subtitles, quizzes, table of contents).
The Zoom video conferencing system is suitable for seminars / events with more interactivity and for student group work. Events in Zoom can be recorded. Use Panopto to make the recordings available to students.
AV Media Kit
The AV media kit facilitates the recording and transmitting of an event taking place in the physical teaching room as well as the implementation of the hybrid teaching room, i.e. some students are in the physical teaching room with live transmission for those not present. As of fall semester 2021, it will be possible to record events in all teaching rooms with a capacity of 90 people or more in full occupancy. The room info indicates which room is equipped with recording infrastructure and/or the AV media kit.
Learning Platform ADAM (ILIAS)
ADAM is the central learning platform for designing and accompanying self-study; individual ADAM modules can also be used for the synchronous learning phase.
The "Panopto Video" module allows to record events or make videos/audios accessible directly from ADAM.
You are of course free to continue using proven tools (see also Edutools).
