Temporary software offers for teaching
At present, some software manufacturers offer temporary licenses, the use of which - otherwise only within the university - is now also possible on private end devices within the framework of teaching. This allows students to work on exercises or laboratory tasks on their own computer at home.

There is currently an offer from IBM to use temporary trial licenses of IBM SPSS until June 15, 2020. This is especially intended for students and university staff who are now working at home rather than at university and do not have their own SPSS license:
Because it is a trial license that is not tied to a contract, it can be used anywhere in a compliance-compliant manner and can therefore be used and taught from the home office. Each individual can download these free SPSS licenses directly from the following page:
Pool room use from home (VDI@home, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering)
Temporary access to pool room computers from home is possible for students of mechanical engineering.
This allows, for example, 3D modelling as usual or simulations to be carried out on the pool room computers. Access must be via VPNVirtuelle privates Netzwerk; über eine bestehende Internetverbindung wird der Rechner virtuell an einen anderen Ort gesetzt und bekommt alle Zugriffsmöglichkeiten, als ob er vor Ort wäre. Nifty! and via a special network. If you need access, please contact your supervisor in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering or some of the teachers of Mechanical Engineering will offer access to your students in the context of courses.
