Large classes at universities (>1600 students) create their own challenges for teaching and learning. Audience feedback is lacking and fine tuning of lectures, courses and exam preparation to address individual needs is very difficult to achieve. At RWTH Aachen University, a course concept and a knowledge map learning tool aimed to support individual students to prepare for exams in information science through theme-based exercises were developed and evaluated. The tool was grounded in the notion of self-regulated learning with the goal of enabling students to learn independently.
