  • support:

    • remember to tell the course name, instance and repo URL in the message - providing all the background information makes it easier for us to come with responses
    • URGENT questions (e.g. if the exam is about to start and there seems to be a technical issue)? Use the label TIME-CRITICAL in the subject field of your email message! We aim at reacting to these issues asap (Mon-Fri office hours).
