IT sites of the faculty

Welcome to the IT sites of the Faculty of Management and Economics.
"Infomation Technology" (abbreviation: IT) is an important part of the everyday work and research at the university. Therefore, the faculty has set itself the task of paying particular attention to this area. In this respect please note also:


Blackboard is the web-based teaching and learning platform which was licensed for the Ruhr-University Bochum in 2000. It is provided on its own blackboard hardware by the Computer Centre. Click here, if you want to go to Blackboard... 


Moodle is a software for learning platforms on the Internet. Educational institutions and companies can operate their own Moodle systems and provide learning opportunities for their participants. The Ruhr-University Bochum also uses Moodle. Here is a link to the Moodle website... 

CIP Pools

The Ruhr University provides a number of so-called CIP pools. These are pools of networked workstations with Internet access (CIP stands for "Computer Investment Programme", a programme for establishing such pools from the 1990s).
The CIP Pools of the Ruhr-University Bochum can be used only by members and associates of the Ruhr-University Bochum.
