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.

Pling! A notification. Pling! And again, a notification. Whether it’s Whatsapp, Facebook or Snapchat, we receive notifications about the latest events from all sorts of platforms throughout the day.

Often these are then not urgent, not relevant or not even meant for you in the first place, because a heated discussion is just taking place in a group chat. And also at RWTHmoodle we are often asked if it is possible to turn off notifications that are not of interest to oneself. Since this was not easily possible until now, we have listened to your feedback and made a few adjustments.

The members of the community met from July 6th to 10th on a specially created Moodle instance. Among the more than 1000 participants from over 120 countries were representatives of the IT Center and the Learning Platform Management Department of the Center for Teaching and Learning Services at RWTH Aachen University.
