Due to the current situation (the corona crisis), the university is closed to the public and the computer labs are closed. For practical work, however, students are lacking the software normally provided in the pool rooms. Installing the necessary software on private devices is not possible due to licensing restricts, lack of installation packages, lack of knowledge about installing and configuring the software, etc.

Since the bwLehrpool clients in the labs are not accessible to students, a possiblity was developed to access these remotely using a simple web browser.
