Software

The web conferencing systems Zoom and Adobe Connect are used to participate in synchronous online events and to conduct practice moderations.

In addition, students are given access to further tools for audience interaction (e.g. Mentimeter, Kahoot!), which can be tried out during the exercise sequences (online/present).

Asynchronous learning activities are organised and carried out via the Moodle learning platform.

The creative and authoring tools Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Captivate, Vyond and H5P are used to create e-learning content.

As part of the (online) courses, further collaboration tools are used by the lecturers to support digital collaboration. 

Hardware

Appropriate equipment for video conferencing can be hired for holding live online events. This primarily includes webcams, USB headsets and external screens. In addition, tablets and document cameras are available that can be used for live visualisation.

Three e-learning booths are available for content production. The soundproofed individual workstations are each equipped with a height-adjustable table, docking station, screen, microphone, headphones and power sockets. Furthermore, the Faculty of Media offers PC pools (30 workstations) with powerful computers. The stationary computers are equipped with common office programmes, the "Adobe Creative Suite" and the authoring tool "Adobe Captivate". For mobile use, notebooks can be used as rental devices. The programmes used in the study programme are also installed on these. Mobile audio/video and lighting technology is available at our faculty for real film recordings.

Seminar rooms

Our seminar rooms are equipped with WLAN and professional moderation technology (beamer, moderation case, pin board, flip chart, moderation marker, whiteboard, blackboard, etc.). They thus meet the common standard in adult education and enable students to practise using various media in face-to-face seminars and workshops.

 

 

Indirect access to further software and hardware (e.g. VR glasses, interactive whiteboards) exists via other degree programmes / faculties. This can be used by arrangement.
