RUB has purchased a campus licence for the Zoom video conferencing tool. The university management has decided to use the tool in teaching, research and administration. It is planned to be used until April 2021, as agreed with the staff councils and the data protection officer. Information on how to obtain a license, FAQs and other tips on how to use ZOOM can be found on the IT.SERVICES website.
As part of its RUBel services, the Centre for Science Didactics also offers brief tutorials on how to use the tool in teaching.
Other conference systems can naturally also be used, for example “DFNconf” to ensure higher privacy standards. For all systems, recordings may only be made with the explicit consent of all parties concerned – i.e. the persons in video and/or audio recordings. Consent must be verifiable. Furthermore, the use of the systems is voluntary.
