Scenario 1: Teaching an Online Class/Lecture

Zoom Meetings for Teaching and Holding Office Hours

Zoom is provided by the University's Campus IT. Access the service at: https://hs-offenburg.zoom.us

An introduction to Zoom can be found here. Further information is available on this Campus IT website [German language only].

Use Zoom to:

  • communicate with students (audio and video)
  • text-chat
  • show files
  • write on the whiteboard
  • set up breakout rooms for groupwork

To do this, you generate a virtual room ("meeting"), the URL of which you communicate to the students.

We recommend using a headset (e.g. Logitech H390).

Zoom sessions can be recorded (while observing data-protection regulations).
