Update June 12, 2020:
Since I got already a few mails to this topic...:
Since the Covid crisis, many things at the university have changed, e.g., also procedures concerning exams. The situation is especially critical for exams with presence of the students. There have to be certain precautions taken and prepartions made before-hand, and everything has to be organized well in advance. So even if there is in principle no limit in participants to the exam, the university puts the registrations as "in considertion" - but this does not mean that one cannot participate in the exam, provided that the general situation does not change until the exam date. According to the SSC, the status shall be changed from "in consideration" to "registered", when the number of all participants becomes clear (this should be one day before the exam).

As long as not mandatory by Uni Wien, there will be NO online exams for this course.
