Web Based Training

Learning sequences or entire courses can be implemented as WBT (Web Based Training). A WBT consists of individual units, which are compiled from images, texts, film sequences, screen recordings, audio contributions, test exercises or references to further Internet sources, for example, and integrated into a WBT. A WBT can usually be viewed in browsers and worked through in a more or less linear fashion.
In a WBT, for example, lecture contents can be presented to students in individual, multimedia-based lessons. These lessons can be worked through by the students themselves online in a self-directed manner analogous to a weekly lecture. In this case, the use of WBTs enables teachers to combine elements of self-directed learning with classroom instruction. (Linked page in German.)


On the one hand, webcasting refers to the transmission of audio or video data via the Internet as a streaming format. To view the data, the so-called webcast, users need appropriate players or plug-ins. (Linked page in German.) 


The term is made up of the terms "web" and "seminar" and usually refers to an online event that is broadcast live using a conference system. The focus is usually on conveying specific learning material via live video stream and parallel slide presentation. In contrast to webcasts, which are primarily designed for asynchronous teaching of content, webinars take place at fixed times so that teachers and learners can meet virtually at the same time, i.e. synchronously, and communicate with each other - usually via chat. In addition, there is often the possibility to integrate further interactive elements, e.g. surveys. (Linked page in German.) 

Web conference

With the DFNconf service you can conduct video, audio and web conferences, as you are used to from Skype, for example. Prerequisite is a computer (PC/Mac, laptop, tablet, smartphone) with Internet access and a headset or loudspeaker and microphone. Possible scenarios in university teaching are for example:

Please note the current information of DFN Verein on the use of DFNconf and COVID-19.

Since this week (week 12) the DFNconf service is heavily used. The HRZ is working on alternatives and will inform here accordingly.

Web conference system

The DfNconf offers two variants for conducting web conferences:

  • Pexip: This allows "classic" video conferences with excellent video and audio features to be held with up to 23 participants. Participation in a conference is possible via browser, app, dedicated video conferencing system or via telephone.
  • Adobe Connect: The web conferencing service is available on Adobe Connect for virtual teaching and learning scenarios (e-learning) that require a common presentation surface, small groups of participants, small reviews or webinars with up to 200 participants.

Please note the current information of DFN Verein on the use of DFNconf and COVID-19.

A webquest is a computer-supported learning arrangement with which learners are supposed to acquire a subject area independently (usually in group work). Mostly it is a structured research project on specific topics on the internet. The structuring takes place - to a varying extent depending on the learning group - by means of guiding questions, indicated sources and possibly a distribution of roles. (Linked page in German.)

Interactive Whiteboard

An interactive whiteboard is a system that, unlike conventional slate or whiteboards, is capable of digitally recording the whiteboard images and making them available for further use or simultaneously transmitting them to connected computers (network, Internet). (Linked page in German.)


Wikis are widespread, easy-to-use content management systems that enable content to be published on the Internet that can be edited by a large number of users. You can integrate wikis into your teaching by using ILIAS and/or Stud.IP.
