PING PONG

PING PONG is being replaced
As of spring semester 2021, PING PONG will be gradually replaced by the new learning management system Canvas. Canvas will be fully implemented as of autumn term 2022. PING PONG will be phased out during spring term of 2022.

Your teacher will inform you about which learning platform you should use in each course. Until the autumn of 2022, it may be the case that you as a student have some courses that use PING PONG and some that use Canvas.
