Lecture Videos

The Data and Web Science Group records core lectures for Master students on video and provides screen casts of  accompanying exercises in order to enable students to be more flexible in their learning patterns.

Up till now, we have recorded the Data Mining I, Data Mining II, Web Mining,  Web Data Integration, Web Search and Information RetrievalText AnalyticsLarge-scale Data Management, Decision Support, and Knowledge Mangement lectures and provide screen casts for the Data Mining I and Web Data Integration exercises.  

Lots of thanks to the Referat Neue Medien of the Stabsstelle Studium und Lehre for supporting us in recording the lecture videos.

Please note that the videos can only be accessed from within the University of Mannheim. If students want to watch them from home, they need to connect to the university via VPN.
