BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing platform with a focus on e-learning scenarios.
Due to demand, we have put local BigBlueButton servers into operation at both locations. In addition to communication via video and audio, the platform allows for screen sharing, a whiteboard, a chat and jointly editable notes. Lectures can also be recorded for later streaming. It is possible to create and participate in a web conference with any workstation computer that has speakers (or a headphone connection). A webcam and a microphone (preferably a headset) are required to use the video and audio chat. Every employee can create a conference room with his or her university ID. Anyone who knows the name (link) of the room can take part in a conference.
