SWITCHcast transforms the lecture theatre into a virtual experience
This sophisticated video management system from SWITCH means that students no longer need complain about missed lectures. And for lecturers, in turn, it offers a unique opportunity to follow new approaches to teaching.
Virtual lecture online or as download
Recording lectures on a multimedia basis with SWITCHcast hardly costs lecturers anything. The hardware and software, together with efficient support, are all provided by SWITCH. And this ensures that the benefit for the students is all the greater: they can follow the virtual lecture online or as a download on their own personal iPod – as often and as long as they want to.
Many of the bigger universities in Berne, St. Gallen and Zurich are already successfully using SWITCHcast for their services. The recordings cannot be viewed by the public but are accessible primarily to those registered for a specific subject.
