Time to say goodbye, L2P!

The time has come: After 14 years, it is with a heavy heart that we say our final goodbyes to L2P.

Until 2019, L2P was the central teaching and learning platform at RWTH Aachen University. In the course of “Digitalization Strategy for Teaching” it was decided to switch to Moodle as an open source software. After a successful test and pilot phase, RWTHmoodle was implemented into university-wide operation in the summer semester 2019 and since then L2P has only served as an archive.

After four semesters with RWTHmoodle, L2P will finally be switched off at the end of the summer semester 2021.

For this reason, we recommend that all persons who are currently authorised in one or more course rooms of the L2P teaching and learning platform save the documents and materials from the corresponding course rooms in good time.

To view your course rooms and learning materials, click on “Previous semesters” on the dashboard in L2P and then select the corresponding course room. Then click on “learning materials” in the navigation on the left to display all available content.

In order to download the materials with as little effort as possible, we recommend one of the two software solutions for synchronisation:

  • L2Pbox (for Windows)
  • Sync-my-L2P (for Windows, Mac, Linux; this link always leads to the latest version of Sync-my-L2P)

Please note that there will be no possibility to retrieve the data after the shutdown.

Even though it is difficult to say goodbye to L2P, we have successfully established a worthy successor in RWTHmoodle
