Names and e-mail addresses
RWTHmoodle automatically obtains the names and E-mail addresses of its users from Identity Management following certain rules.
Only users whose e-mail address is coming from Selfservice can change the address themselves.
For info on the visibilty of names and e-mail adresses for different groups of people in the course room, please read the manual for Visibility of names and e-mail addresses.
The following table shows the rules for getting the data:
student status (excluding Ph.D.-program)
Employees with student status
Persons without employee
or student status
RWTH e-mail address
|RWTH e-mail address||institute e-mail address||institute e-mail address||Contact e-mail address from Selfservice|
In order that the official institute e-mail address can further be used, the user (eg. ab123456) has to have a so-called TIM-CAMPUS coupling. This means that the username is connected to the CAMPUS organization directory.
If a TIM-CAMPUS coupling exists for you, can be checked in the Selfservice of RWTH Aachen University as follows:
- Log in to the selfservice with your user name (eg. ab123456) and your central password.
- Go to the “RWTH data” tab.
- If there is a TIM-CAMPUS coupling, a blue rectangle next to “CAMPUS entries” will show up.
If you do not have a TIM-CAMPUS coupling, the contact e-mail address from the Selfservice will be used. To get a TIM-CAMPUS coupling, please contact your organizational unit.
