Online oral exams

In LearnIT on the page for the course we have now shared the date for your exam.

More details on the exam as well as the exact time for the exam will follow no later than Friday January 15 in LearnIT.

The decision has been made based on discussions in the faculty and management.

No, starting from December 9. and until February 7 Campus will be closed. This means that students and staff cannot access ITU for teaching, groupwork or studying. 

No, due to the new restrictions Campus has been closed, starting from December 9 and until February 7.

No. ITU adheres to the national guidelines stating that students must be able to prove that they are alone during the examination if asked to do so by the examiner. This common rule for all students in Denmark aims at ensuring that students do not receive any help during the exam. Once you have showed the room, you can display a background picture to maintain privacy.

Each exam begins with the identity of the student being established. If asked by the examiners, you must show student ID card.

If you can't find your student ID card: 
You can show your passport or drivers licence or you can log on to LearnIT, go to your profile page and share the screen.

If the date on your student card has expired:
Since you cannot go to ITU because of the lockdown we do not expect you to renew your student ID card. Therefore you can still use the one you have, even with the date being expired. Also in this period you will of course not loose access to any of the ITU related systems and entrances.

Yes. In order to make the online exam as close to ordinary face-to-face exams as possible, it is mandatory to turn on the camera during the entire exam. The only exception is when you share your screen in Zoom, as this setting does not allow using the camera at the same time.

We recommend that you select a virtual background in Zoom. See tutorial. You can use this background of ITU, if you want.

According to the Examination Order, audio or video recording of an exam is not allowed unless the recordings are part of the examination. In such cases, the University undertakes the recording. The recording must thus not take place if the sole aim is to use the recording in the case of an exam complaint or to reveal cheating.

If you think that there is a risk of being disturbed, we recommend that you find an alternative to your home where there is quiet. 

Please check out the ITU Zoom tutorial where it is explained how to present PowerPoint slides without having a full screen blocking your view and notes.

  • In light of the recent restrictions it is not recommended that you are in the same room as the other students in your group during online exams.
