Recording and transmission of courses

Recording and transmission of courses

The recording of lectures and seminars enables students to rework the teaching material independent of time and location and can especially support target groups such as foreign students, students with family or with professional obligations or enable them to study. The aim is not to call into question classroom teaching, but rather to offer supplementary options for knowledge transfer. Video recordings are suitable as a basis for modern teaching concepts, such as the "Inverted Classroom" or "MOOCs", and can also contain only selected course contents of a course for this purpose.

Our team takes care of setting up and operating the recording technology as well as encoding and providing the recording on the video server. Together with the Centre for University Didactics, we can advise you on the use of new teaching methods.

Lecture recording

When a lecture is recorded, the presentation slides or the blackboard picture as well as the video image of the lecturer are recorded. A table of contents is created for each recording. This makes it possible to select individual topics of the lecture directly. Furthermore, it is also possible to search for keywords in a recording. The presentation slides and the video image are replayed in parallel, examples can be found on the video server.

Lecture transmission

With lecture transmission, the lecture takes place at one location and is transmitted live to one or more other locations. By using high-quality video conferencing technology, the listeners in a remote lecture hall can ask or answer questions via microphone and thus participate in the event on an equal footing with local listeners.

This scenario requires rooms in which the necessary technology is permanently installed, such as the Tannenhöhe multimedia lecture hall or the large physics lecture hall, as well as a compatibly equipped remote station.
