    • WWUzoom: With WWUzoom you can carry out video conferences and digital meetings with up to 300 participants (including screen sharing and chat). Due to its uncomplicated use and high stability even with many participants, the service is suitable for a wide range of communication scenarios, including teaching.
    • DFNconf: Using the DFNconf portal, employees of Münster University can create a video conference, in which telephone participants and video conference systems can also join.
    • Jitsi Meet: As an alternative to DFNconf, you can set up video conferences with Jitsi Meet. Jitsi Meet is operated by WWU IT and is particularly suitable for smaller meetings with about 10 participants.

  • Streaming (Teaching)

    Usage Scenario: presentation of content to a larger audience with only sporadic feedback

    • Services offered by ZHLdigital: ZHLdigital has put together various options for digitizing lectures on its website for distance learning. A good alternative to live streaming, which is simple and can be done from home, is to add an audio track to your PowerPoint presentation. Students can view the presentation with a time delay.
    • Feedback Channel: You can use our chat service Mattermost as a channel for student feedback.
