Welcome to AMBOSS’ University Sessions Information Page!
Universities and their staff can offer customized sessions to their students, adapted to their own curriculum, for example accompanying lectures, seminars, or study modules. Below you will find a Step-By-Step guide to create University Sessions as well as a list of FAQs.
Step-by-Step guide to create University Sessions
Step 1: Log in to your AMBOSS account.
If you’re having trouble accessing your account with your University Campus License, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily support you.
Step 2: Create a new folder.
Every folder you create is a session which holds a number of questions . To begin, click on “Manage University Sessions” in “Overview“ . Or hover over “Qbank” on the left panel, then click “Manage University Sessions”. Click “Create new folder” as shown in Figure 1.
(Your folder will only be visible for you, as long as you don’t publish them.)
Step 3: Give your session a name.
Save the changes by clicking on the left icon underneath “ACTIONS“.
Step 4: Assign labels to your session.
Pick the related subjects, semester and organ systems. By assigning labels to your sessions, you make it easier for students to find your sessions and filter out others.
Step 5: Add questions to your folder.
Start a session with the questions you want, and you can do this in two ways:
i) Either through the Qbank:
- Hover the mouse over “Qbank”
- Click on “Create a session”.
- Choose any session you want, either under “Exam Preparation,” “Custom Session,” “By Organ” or “By Symptom”.
- Click on “Get started”.
ii) Or through the Library:
- Click on “Library”
- Open any Learning Card
- Click on the icon at the top right of your screen, as shown in Figure 3.
Go through the questions, and add the most relevant to your folder. To do so, click on the icon (which resembles 3 books), then check the box next to the title of your folder, as shown in Figure 4. You can add as many questions as you want to the folder.
Step 6: Start the University Session
Go back to “Manage University Sessions” under “Qbank” and click on the middle icon (triangle).
Step 7: Ready to publish your session?
Check the box under the “PUBLIC” column (see Figure 5), then save the changes by clicking on the left icon under “ACTIONS“.
Newly published folders will only become available to students after about one hour. However, changes to the content will (e.g. adding questions) become available immediately.
Step 8: Test your students!
Students of your faculty will be able to see your published sessions under “Qbank” => “Create a session” => “My university.”
You can also share the session using its direct link, as shown in Figure 5.
