PC practical course
The PC practical course offers an overview of tool-based work and collaboration in companies. The main focus lies on standard applications of the modern office world. After successful participation in this course, all relevant applications in the Office area can be used (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, Excel, SharePoint and Teams). In addition, there is an introduction to reference management and the free Mendeley software. The knowledge imparted in the course is not only subject-specific, but can be used universally and supports both the successful completion of the studies and the start of a career.

Access to the course platform (StudOn course)
The course platform (StudOn course) can be accessed via the vhb PC practical course.
How can I register for the course?
You can register as of the 01.04.2022 via the vhb (see above). It is not necessary to register with the supervisors or via StudOn. There is no limit to the number of participants, panic at missing the first possible registration day is not necessary!
Is the number of participants limited?
No, it is not.
Can I get credit for the course as a student of X as Y?
Unfortunately, we don’t know that either. Please clarify this with your responsible examination office.
Can I have the course credited as a key qualification?
For reasons of examination law, crediting as a key qualification is not possible for students at the WiWi faculty as well as at all other vhb universities.
I registered for the exam and/or project work via MeinCampus last semester, but failed one of the two exam performances. The grade of the other performance is posted in MeinCampus. Do I have to repeat the entire module?
No, that is exactly why we have made it possible to register for the project work separately from the exam. If you get the grade of one part of the module in MeinCampus, you do not have to repeat this part of the module. Please note: this only applies to participants who have registered for the exam and the project work via MeinCampus.
I did not find the exam numbers in MeinCampus. My examination office at FAU has now registered me manually for an exam. Why am I not on the list of participants?
Only students registered in the above-mentioned examination numbers can take part in the exam. If the examination numbers are not displayed in MeinCampus for your course of study, please contact the course supervisor immediately with your matriculation number, course of study and degree.
Where will the introductory event take place and what will be taught there?
Due to the shortage of space, the introductory event will take place entirely virtually. Mainly organizational topics will be covered there. If you have managed to log in to the course, you will find a recording there as a lecture-on-demand package at the beginning of the semester.
Are there any other attendance dates apart from the introductory event?
The online course is self-study. There are no events in which knowledge about the content is imparted.
I have Office for MAC, Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 365 or a completely different program, but not Office 2019, can I still attend the course?
Yes, Office 2019 is installed in the CIP pools of FB WiWi in Nuremberg. There you can practice and create the project work. Please note that we cannot make any statement about whether other versions of MS Office really create 100% compatible files.
