The Service Center for Digital Teaching and Learning assists you in conducting webinars and web conferences that serve online teaching. We provide the necessary hardware and software.
Web Conferences using Zoom
Zoom is a licensed web conferencing system that allows users to view images, sound, chat and documents jointly. For taking part in a meeting, you need a good internet connection, an internet browser or the Zoom application for the desktop. Attendance via smartphone or tablet is possible.
To hold a meeting with Zoom, you need access to it, as Zoom requires a license. At Danube University Krems one Zoom license is available for each department in order to support virtual teaching.
The departments are not charged any special costs. For further information, please contact the Service Center for Digital Teaching and Learning per e-mail: eLearning@donau-uni.ac.at.
Web conferences on Moodle (Big Blue Button)
Web conferences that started with the beginning of a Moodle course can be held alternatively using the BigBlueButton software (=activity in Moodle).
You will find more information in INFO-Moodle
The main scenarios for holding webinars do not require any additional hardware apart from a notebook (with integrated camera) or PCs plus headset and webcam. You can hold your webinars comfortably from at home or from your computer in the office.
For the holding web conferences in which several people attend on campus (e.g. virtual defensio, coordination meetings with virtual participants, integration of virtual guests in classroom events,...) the mobile video conferencing system (LogiTech) is free for rent.
