Application conditions

Central learning platform

  • No separate application is required to use the service. After the first login with the kiz account, a profile is created in Moodle. After this, you can use the kiz account to access various content in Moodle and enroll in courses (student role).
  • In order to offer courses in Moodle, teachers of the University of Ulm need extended rights (role lecturer). You have to apply via an online form for extended rights, as well as setting up own courses.


Users of the ViSchnu feature should contact the Central Student Advisory Office (no application to the kiz).


There are no fees and charges for the service. The implementation of feature requests, which are desired by users and whose implementation is generally supported by the kiz, may cause one-time implementation costs and permanent maintenance costs in long-term operation. Under certain circumstances, these costs may be invoiced in full or in part. The exact conditions depend on the individual case.


In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, special modalities apply to this service in the summer semester of 2020.
