Course syllabus and organization

Single session

The lessons of the first semester from 21 September to 4 November 2020 were held in mixed mode:
in the classroom with a limited number of students, who have booked using their unified e-mail credentials through the "lessonsUnimi" app ( -degree / follow ...) and at the same time synchronously through the "Teams platform" for students not present; the lessons were also video-recorded to allow students unable for documented needs to follow them in sync.
From 5 November 2020 to 15 January 2021, face-to-face lessons have been suspended as per the Rector's Decree. Teaching continued remotely: the lessons were delivered through the Microsoft Teams platform, mostly in synchrony, almost always respecting the calendars approved for the current semester.
The lessons of the second semester will start in early March 2021 and will probably take place in mixed mode, with booking through the dedicated app, following the rules adopted in the first semester: in safety, in compliance with hygiene rules, with the use of PPE and observing the spacing.
