The Servicecenter für Teaching Innovation and Digital Competence Development 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.

The university owns a Zoom campus license. Zoom is available to all employees using SingleSignOn. It is not necessary to apply for a license.

Zoom can be reached under the following link: https://donau-uni.zoom.us

For further information, please contact the Servicecenter für Teaching Innovation and Digital Competence Development per e-mail: eLearning@donau-uni.ac.at.

Find detailed information on Zoom (including instructions) in the INFO-Moodle  and at https://zoom.us/.

 

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

 

Hardware

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.
