UZH-lecture halls which are suitable for lecture recordings

Proceeding (or contact your E-Learning Coordinator)


Virtual lecture or conference

Students have the possibility either to watch a lecture at home or join the lecture in the lecture hall. Especially, in big classes where an additional lecture hall is needed due to the amount of students, it is an obvious approach to offer the students the lecture virtually via broadcast (e.g. lecture recording, podcast).

Recording lectures on a multimedia basis with SWITCHcast hardly costs the lecturers any additional effort. The hardware and software, together with an efficient support, are all provided by SWITCH, the Audio-Video Service UZH and the E-Learning Coordinator who is responsible for your Department and will initiate the proceeding. The students then can follow the published virtual online lecture or if enabled as a downloaded resource on their personal mobile device - as often and as long as they want or need to.
