Leipzig University Computer Help for IPSP students

I am looking forward to descriptions of problems and/or obscure error messages you encountered with almaweb, the university email, and moodle. If you can also provide a solution that is even better. In the course of time the descriptions of the problems and solutions will grow into a HowTo page for IPSP students.

In the end a good HowTo entry should involve a description of a

  1. problem with a quote of the /error message/ and the context where it arises
  2. solution
    • Whom did you contact when something did not work, and how did you describe the problem?
    • Which web page did you visit to solve the problem, and which information was filled in?

Suggestions for new topics can be added in the Discussion field in the bottom of this page.
