Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is Adobe's web conferencing system that enables video and audio to be transmitted between multiple computers. The system is suitable for conducting so-called webinars, for teaching cooperation with other universities, for live transmission of lectures, for holding oral examinations or for offering virtual consultation hours. (Linked page in German.) 

Due to the continuous overload of the servers of the DFN-Verein, which also leads to more and more error messages from ILIAS, we unfortunately had to switch off the Adobe Connect interface until further notice. Please refer to our page "Lessons to be learned in case of a pandemic" for alternative possibilities. The page is updated constantly.


Animations are created by stringing together images with different image contents or image positions. In picture or graphic animations, several objects are superimposed. The individual images from the stack of images are displayed at a defined position in a certain order. (Linked page in German.) 


(engl. abbreviation for Application); the term has become a designation for application programs that have been specially developed for mobile end devices such as smartphones or tablets. An app can be purchased from the manufacturer of the respective end device via their online shop (e.g. Apple's App Store, Google's Android Market or Microsoft's Windows Phone Marketplace). Users download the app directly from the shop to their device and install it. (Linked page in German.)

A podcast is a media file (e.g. audio, screen, doc, video, etc.) that can be accessed and subscribed to at any time on the Internet. An advantage of using podcasts is, for example, that the downloaded file can be played at any time and thus enables learning independent of time and place (e.g. via the MP3 player in the train). (Linked page in German.) 

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is the supplementation and extension of the real world with digital information, e.g. on smartphones or tablet PCs. This extension can address all human senses. Often, augmented reality is only understood as the visual extension of information, i.e. the addition of computer-generated additional information to images or videos by means of fade-in/overlay. (Linked page in German.) 


An author is any natural person who has created a work by personal intellectual achievement. If several persons create a work together, e.g. write a joint publication, they are so-called co-authors. (Linked page in German.) 

Authoring tool 

(Also: Authoring system); Authoring tools are tools for multimedia preparation of learning content and development of learning software (e.g. Authorware, Flash, ToolBook). Even without special programming knowledge, simple applications can be created with them. (Linked page in German.)
