Document Actions



Vet-learn is the ILIAS-based learning platform for students and teachers of veterinary medicine at JLU. It offers e-learning materials on various topics, such as pathophysiology and -biochemistry, interactive biochemistry for veterinarians, clinical examination methods, the blood picture atlas for displaying different blood cells of domestic animals, the virtual microscope as an electronic histologist atlas or a tissue database.


A video blog (colloquially also called "Vlog", from: V(ideo-Web)log; derived from this are also the terms "Vlogger" for someone who runs a videoblog and "Vlogging" for the activity itself) denotes a weblog whose periodically appearing contributions consist mainly of video material.

The audiovisual support of a virtual communication situation by means of video conference systems offers - in contrast to text-based communication - additional information through facial expressions and gestures of the counterpart. With video or web conferences, for example, you can organize courses at physically separate locations. When choosing a specific video conference system, various technical issues need to be considered. The web conferencing system Adobe Connect is ideal for this purpose. It can be used for web conferences, lecture hall transmissions and live streaming.

Please note that videoconferencing is a real-time transmission of teaching arrangements and is very data intensive. Due to the expected increase in the use of various online solutions, you should also consider other didactic arrangements where didactically appropriate. Hints for solutions can be found here: Overview page on digital teaching at JLU.

Videoconferencing system

A videoconferencing system is a technology that allows students and teachers to communicate with each other in real time via image and sound. Communication requires the installation of microphones, a camera (webcam), software and a connection to the Internet. A distinction is made between PC-supported video conferences and group systems. A group system allows many people to participate in different locations (multipoint conference). Videoconferencing systems often also enable joint work on documents or the sharing of applications (application sharing). The possible quality of the received audio and video data strongly depends on the transmission rate (bandwidth) of the Internet connection.

Please note that these tools are those that allow real-time transfer of teaching arrangements. Due to the expected increase in the use of various online solutions, they should - where didactically appropriate - also consider other didactic arrangements. Hints for solutions can be found here: Overview of digital teaching at JLU.

Does JLU recommend the "Zoom" tool? - NO! According to a preliminary assessment by our data protection officers, "Zoom seems to be designed to collect, store, link and share user data to a much greater extent than other tools and should therefore not be used". However, there will be recommendations and hints for jlu-internal and a jlu-external tool, which you can expect in KW14. Please understand that we do not have the possibility to coordinate legal audits of providers beyond that. Especially now it is necessary that we all prepare ourselves for a pragmatic working ability under the given, dynamic conditions.

Virtual Reality

Virtual realities are models of reality simulated by computer technology, which are interactive in contrast to traditional artificial realities (e.g. film). The user can intervene in the program flow and change it. Virtual reality is used in numerous applications in industry and technology, such as flight simulators, computer-based architecture or the simulation of chemical reactions. (Linked page in German.) 

 Virtual classrooms

A virtual classroom refers to teaching scenarios in which the Internet is used as a communication medium for physically separated teachers and students. By using learning platforms, webcams or even whiteboards, it is possible to enable the participants to see, hear and speak together as well as to work on documents together and simultaneously.

Virtual microscope

JLU's Stud.IP system allows a virtual microscope to be integrated as a Zoomify plug-in. The virtual microscope offers students and members of Justus Liebig University the opportunity to study common microscopic anatomical specimens on screen. The tool offers the possibility to microscope objects at home PC and to learn the correct designation of the visible components in the preparations. In order to be able to see microscopic details up to maximum magnification, individual microscopic slides have been rasterized at highest resolution. The overall images were designed by the "Zoomify" software with POI annotations so that when you scan over an object with the mouse, the correct designation of the visible structures appears. At the Justus Liebig University, the plug-in is used, for example, in veterinary medicine, botany or chemistry.
