Exam Inspection

Hi,

I made the results visible in the CMS. I am not sure, whether I have used the function correctly: If you see a 5.0 but you have not been registered in HISPOS/LSF for the exam don't worry. It seems that currently the CMS assigns the 5.0 to everyone,... Read more

Hi,

I made the results visible in the CMS. I am not sure, whether I have used the function correctly: If you see a 5.0 but you have not been registered in HISPOS/LSF for the exam don't worry. It seems that currently the CMS assigns the 5.0 to everyone, independent of whether or not you were registered in HISPOS/LSF.

I will add the grades directly to HISPOS/LSF at the end of October (after the exam inspection) and will post another CMS news, so that you can check whether something seems odd.

The exam inspection is likely on 29.10.2020, 9am, E1.3 HS001. If you are interested in inspecting your exam, please register with the Exam Inspection here in the CMS. This is necessary because of the current regulations. The deadline for this registration is until 02.10.2020, so please register soon. I will contact those that were interested in expecting the exam with more information at a later date.

If you are registered and attend the exam Gamification & Game Studies please read the following information carefully:

If your answer is "yes" to one or more of the following questions, then you are not allowed to attend the exam. If you provide a doctor’s certificate to the examination office later on, the examination attempt will be canceled and will not count.

Did you have definite contact with a Covid-19 patient, who was tested positive, in the last 14 days?

Do you have any of the following symptoms?
▪ Cough / Husten
▪ Sore throat / Halsschmerzen
▪ Nasal congestion / runny nose / Schnupfen
▪ Diarrhoea /Durchfall
▪ Fever /Fieber
▪ Aches and pains / Gliederschmerzen
▪ Loss of smell (e.g. no longer able to smell burnt food) / Geruchsverlust
▪ Loss of taste (e.g. unable to distinguish when food is burnt) / Geschmacksverlust

If you are not sure about the answer to one of these questions, then you need to consult a doctor to decide whether or not your health status is critical. If the decision is that you can participate, then you have to bring a medical certificate along to the exam.
 

- Remember to bring your student ID.
- Please be on time tomorrow
- Wear your mask when entering the exam room.

If you are registered for the exam Gamification & Game Studies (PLEASE CHECK IN CMS), please check the following information: Please note that it is absolutely necessary for you to bring your own protection mask with you. Students who have a doctor’s certificate that they cannot wear protection masks have to bring their own face shields and wear these instead of a mask.

All participants and supervisors have to wear protection masks when they enter/leave the room, when talking to each other, and when checking student identities. Due to the safety of all persons in the room it is strongly recommended to wear protection masks during the entire exam.

A safety distance of at least 1.5m should be kept at all times. The only exception is checking identities, where there is insufficient space to place the ID cards with such a distance; both the student and the supervisor must wear a mask during the identity check.

We will again post on Sunday.

We have exported the registration from the LSF system and imported them to the CMS, i.e., you should now be able to see on your dashboard whether you are registered (you see a green label) or not (you see a text that the registration deadline is over).

In addition, if registered, you should have received a generic e-mail from me that you are registered for the exam. If you don’t see the green label in the CMS or did not receive the generic email from me, you are not correctly registered and cannot participate in the exam.

We will write in the Günter-Hotz lecture hall only (E2.2, not in its Foyer) – please take the doors on the back (see https://cms.sic.saarland/gg20/dl/202/GHH_doors_to_take.png). We will open these at 12:01pm and one of the supervisors will assign you a seat. The exam will start at around 12:15pm (we start by checking the student IDs). Please do not form big crowds in front of the exam room entrances to ensure the required safety distance.

You need to adhere to the Covid-19 rules – you will receive another email (if you are registered for the exam) and a CMS news on Thursday and on Sunday in respect to the regulations and with further information.

Gamification & Game Studies

This advanced lecture (3 ECTS) will present and discuss systems that use game design ideas with a focus on Gamification. We pursue the following goals:

  • Sharpening the understanding on what you can do with ideas from game design beyond board and video games.
  • Providing you with an overview of game-related research areas in human computer interaction by presenting notable examples.
  • The lecture’s focus on gamification will teach you about aspects to consider if you want to create gameful systems.

We recommend that you have passed the Human Computer Interaction core lecture, if you plan to attend to this lecture. See the lecture topics here in the CMS to decide whether this lecture is interesting for you.

 

Important Information (Update: 16.07)

  • Because of the postponed start of lectures, we have already provided the first three sessions as video recordings. It is highly recommended that you at least watch the administrative parts of the first lecture before 4. May (to see whether this course is a good fit for you). We highly recommend that you watch all three videos, until 8. June. Keep in mind, these lectures are also relevant for the exam. Ideally, you have watched the videos before 4. May.
     
  • We will provide all other lectures as pre-recorded videos as well. There will be no presence meetings (besides the written exam). The videos will be released according to the schedule (see Lecture Topics).
     
  • There will be no exercises and no exercise groups (but you will see examples of tasks in the lecture).
     
  • Lecture language: English
     
  • Exam: Monday, 7 September 2020, 12-3pm (Günter-Hotz). You need to pass this (written) exam to get a certificate for the course. All lectures are relevant for the exam. As stated in lecture 1 you are not allowed to use cheat sheets or books during the exam.
    Remark: If you have attended the Semester Kick-Off Event you might wonder, if we move the exam to another date (given the "four phases" slide there). Answer: the exam date will remain as communicated (and was already clarified with the Dean of Students Affairs).
    Remark 2: We extended the time slot to 3pm to give us all enough time to comply with Corona regulations. We likely need to occupy both lecture halls (maybe even three, depending on how many of you want to write the exam).
     
  • Exam Registration: An early information for you:
    The exam registration will be possible through LSF/HISPOS starting in June (following the faculty regulations). The LSF/HISPOS registration for the exam (compliant with the general regulations) ends on 31.08.2020. Please register on time for the exam.
    When the registration is officially open and you recognize to be unable to register with LSF/HISPOS (and only then), you a) need to first clarify with your examination office whether you can make use of a certificate at all and then b) you need to write a registration email to Pascal Lessel (add your matriculation number, your full name and your study program) which will be confirmed by me.

    As we need to organize everything based on the Corona rules, we will check the registration count within LSF/HISPOS + the confirmed email registrations on 01.09.2020. Based on the numbers we finalize the lecture hall distribution. There will be no option for late registration and if you are not registered, you are not allowed to enter the corresponding halls to write the exam.
  • There will be no re-exam.
