The courses are divided into small units, ideally designed for an easy to digest learning process, with plenty of exercises along the way.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of what’s waiting for you in the app:


Digital lecture notes

Modern students need modern learning tools. No more printed books: from now on, you’ll be using a sophisticated e-book that will take your studying process to the next level.

Read, remembered, understood? Thanks to your digital lecture notes e-book, you can test yourself straight away. At the end of each study unit, you answer questions to check what you’ve learned. And you’re shown the answers straight after. You also have the option of taking digital notes, which you can save and access at any time. You can also use the e-book offline and synchronise it across all your devices.

With the e-book, you can:

  • Take digital lecture notes and store them in an easily accessible digital form
  • Test your knowledge of the material directly in the e-book itself
  • Get immediate results and feedback on your answers, so you can constantly improve
  • Access all of your learning materials even when your're offline
  • Synchronise your materials across all of your devices, so you can easily use these features your way
  • Stop worrying about getting books from the library, late return fees or carrying around heavy books. Everything you need is just a few clicks away.

In addition to the personal lecture notes that you can make digitally on your own, our courses are equipped with learning materials such as texts and multimedia files, which are available to you on myCampus.

You’ll also find specified learning objects and tasks, all laid out in units based on thematic concepts. With this setup, you’ll be able to study at your own pace, but according to a recommended studying plan, designed to help you understand the material in an easier way.

Add to this the extensive range of media files you’ll have access to via our the IU online library, and you’ll have the option to build your own mix of study materials that best suit your preferred ways of studying: whether you prefer watching more videos, reading more texts or performing more tasks, you decide on the studying plan that works for you.

To top it all off, students in the MA programmes will have access to all of the further reading materials they’ll need in order to expand their knowledge and expand their expertise.
