These are the participants' contributions:



Student Case Studies (Publishing exercise)

In the first two seminar sessions, the students had been requested to think about an appropriate case study for their online documentation among the Student Case Studies. Last week, it was introduced into the Publishing and analysing exercise. Now Heike reminded the students to write their ideas (the student case studies still missing) into the respective ECLAS themes in the WIKI as soon as possible so that their case studies could be linked to the Case Study Template.



Land8Lounge discussion group (Analysing exercise)

Heike reminded the participants once more to sign up in Land8Lounge and the specific discussion group as it will be needed from May 18 on due to small group discussions for the Analysing exercise according to the ECLAS themes.

A short question round proved that students had basically understood the next steps. In the end, Heike was happy to announce the next seminar session with two expert contributions about the RUHR area.
