Szenarien für die Online-Lehre

Lehrveranstaltung oder Online-Sprechstunde als Zoom-Konferenz

Zoom wird von der Campus-IT zur Verfügung gestellt. Sie erreichen den Service über https://hs-offenburg.zoom.us
 

Eine Anleitung zum Einstieg in Zoom finden Sie hier. Weitere Informationen zu Zoom gibt es auf dieser Webseite der Campus-IT.

Mit Zoom können Sie:

  • per Audio/Video mit den Studierenden kommunizieren
  • Text-Chat nutzen
  • Folien präsentieren
  • das Whiteboard für Tafelanschriebe nutzen
  • Breakout-Räume für Gruppenarbeiten einrichten

Dazu generieren Sie einen virtuellen Raum ("Meeting/Besprechung"), dessen URL Sie den Studierenden mitteilen.

Wir empfehlen die Nutzung eines Headsets (z.B. Logitech H390).

In Zoom kann die Sitzung aufgezeichnet werden (Datenschutz beachten).


Recording a Class/Lecture and Putting it Online

Note that if you have low bandwidth, you can also just record an audiofile or podcast.

Record a Zoom Meeting

The easiest way is to record your course in Zoom. Click on the button "Aufzeichnen"/Record in the Zoom toolbar.

From at home with your own computer

With the following tools you can create your own screencasts/videos:

  • Zoom: Record a Zoom meeting by clicking on the button "Aufzeichnen"/Record in the toolbar
  • PowerPoint (<link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle mod resource _blank internal link in current>Instructions)
  • Open Broadcaster Software (OBS Studio): free of charge (⇒ <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle mod vimp _top internal link in current>Instructions - Podcast, Online Seminar by Prof. Ettrich from 25 March 2020)
    For the settings you need so that the video can be transcoded in ViMP (see below), see <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle mod resource _blank internal link in current>here.
  • Camtasia: free 30-day license, after that subject to a charge

For all screencasts, we recommend using a headset (e. g. Logitech H390).

At the Hochschule

Room E008 at the Offenburg campus is equipped with recording technology. In addition, mobile recording stations are available one each at both Offenburg and Gengengach campuses.

For questions, please contact Michael Canz.

Prepare Streaming Videos

Moodle is not the right place to store large (video) files. YouTube is problematic for data-protection reasons.

For uploading and storing the video files, therefore, the University makes the video platform <link https: video.hs-offenburg.de _blank internal link in current>ViMP under <link https: video.hs-offenburg.de _blank external link in new>

video.hs-offenburg.de

.

There you can log in with your campus account, then access the videos from Moodle and share them in your course.

For a detailed written description [in German], see <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle mod resource _blank internal link in current>here. For a video instruction, see <link https: video.hs-offenburg.de m af518f06a820b0465445165c58a93778357bd3ff5750ec3f26d33672e3c300bf03b95e62ec4ba815bad053c681b1041d8f2171b9fd89f87af3a64777716db5b9 _top internal link in current>here.

 

Copyright information

  • Make sure to set video visibility to "hidden" when uploading to the video platform. Public videos are visible everywhere in the world - no login needed!
  • Share videos in class via Moodle only
  • Consider using a registration key to protect your course room

Providing Materials for Self-Study

The learning platform <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>Moodle allows you to set up courses accompanying your lecture/class and providing materials and activities, such as:

  • Course scripts, PPT sheets, exercise sheets, sample solutions
  • Online learning activities, exercises, quizzes
  • Discussion forums

Progress Checks

  • To start a discussion with your students, set up a Forum as a Moodle activity (⇒ <link https: docs.moodle.org de forum _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>MoodleDocs instructions). Inform students that questions about the learning material will only be answered in the forum, not via email. Motivate the students to give each other answers to the questions asked. Moderate the forum by summarizing answers, asking further questions and correcting wrong answers.
  • For even more direct, immediate communication, the <link https: hso-chat.cit.hs-offenburg.de home _top external-link-new-window internal link in current>Chat System of Hochschule Offenburg is another great option. Here you can set up your own channels and then link them in Moodle. Teachers, staff and students of the University all have access to the chat system.
    ⇒ <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle mod resource _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>Instruction
  • If you want to assign tasks and collect students' contributions, you can use the Moodle activity Aufgabe (assignment). In this activity you can set deadlines and give individual feedback (with points, grading scales and verbal feedback). The activity can also be done as group work.
    ⇒ <link https: docs.moodle.org de aufgabe _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>MoodleDocs instructions
  • To test students' knowledge you can use the Moodle activity Test. Tests can involve a variety of question types and can be done in different modes (with single/several tries, with/without displaying solutions/feedback, etc.)
    ⇒ <link https: docs.moodle.org de test _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>MoodleDocs instructions

You will find instructions and tips on the most important Moodle functionalities in the [German-language] course <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle course _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>Einstieg in Moodle. The <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle course _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>Moodle demonstration course provides an overview of further options. A Moodle course template can be found <link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle course _blank external-link-new-window internal link in current>here.

For teaching the first-semester basic subjects, such as math, physics or electrical engineering, we put together suitable online courses including materials and activities, and also support you in moderating the course and mentoring your students.

<link https: elearning.hs-offenburg.de moodle course internal link in current>In this Moodle course we provide an example what the first two weeks of such a class could look like.

If you are interested, please contact <link internal link in current>Barbara Meier.

The Z3 offers support for the virtualization of lab experiments, including:

  • Performing tasks based on static test descriptions
  • Demonstrating experiments with dynamic media
  • Live-performing experiments in Zoom
