My password doesn’t work

Are you using the right user name?

Please pay attention to the use of upper and lower case when entering your user name and password. The user name must not contain any spaces or letters with an umlaut (ä, ö, ü).

Why was my application for registration rejected?

Sample answers may only be accessed by teachers.

Applications for registration are checked carefully, which may include verification with your school secretariat. Perhaps the e-mail address on your application was not known to the secretariat, or we did not receive a reply to our request for confirmation.

I have forgotten my password. How can I get a new one?

You can have the password reset on the login page, via the ‘password forgotten’ link. You will then receive an e-mail with further instructions.

If no e-mail reaches you, this means either the e-mail address or the user name you entered are incorrect, or the e-mail landed in your spam/junk folder.

How can I change the e-mail address of my user account?

Sign in on the login page. At the top of the page, you will see the ‘Profile’ item. On this page you can adjust all your details, except your user name.

How can I set English as the default language for

In your browser, choose English as your preferred language, e.g. in

  • Firefox: Preferences > Content > Languages
  • Internet Explorer: Internet options > General > Appearance > Languages

The website will then automatically appear in English.

Or bookmark the English homepage:

I haven’t received an e-mail confirming my application for registration / my newsletter sign-up.

Please check your e-mail spam/junk folder. Automatic confirmation e-mails can sometimes be categorised as spam.

Can online simulations be saved and used again later?
  • In ‘Pitgame’ the game parameters are set in accordance with the goods and participant numbers. Opening a game with the same settings makes it possible to prepare examples in advance (e.g. to print playing cards) and to play them later.
  • For ‘Mopos’, there are four defined scenarios that can always be opened. In random mode, the ‘game number’ makes it possible to replicate the situation later.
  • ‘Urbanias’ makes it possible to save game conditions as URLs and to return to the game later using the URL.

You will find all the details in the relevant ‘Commentary for teachers’.
