On a multimedia expedition with SWITCH
Tele-learning, computer-aided teaching, electronic learning – e-learning has many names and faces. It is needed wherever people are engaged in learning or teaching interactively with the aid of digital media. Equally varied are the needs of university members. SWITCH has taken on the task of satisfying these needs.
Virtual Project Work
Members of universities, at different institutes, who wish to work together on a temporary project can get going straightaway – providing they use the SWITCHtoolbox. It contains the most important online tools in a secure environment.
Listening to an iPod while learning at the same time – impossible? Wrong, this is complementary even. SWITCHcast puts lecturers in a position to record their lectures in just a few simple steps. Students can readily load the AAI-protected contents from the Internet as a podcast, Quicktime or Flash.
Interactive web conferences
To use SWITCHinteract to meet up with others online, exchange data online or edit a document together online, it is enough to have a browser and a webcam. Ideal for web seminars, live presentations and web meetings conducted off your mobile phone, tablet PC or computer.more information
HD video conferences
Conventional videochats, which often look pixellated, are not suitable for business web conferences. SWITCHvideoconf offers university members a professional alternative: with cinema-quality audiovisual transmission and a system that is easy to operate. Precisely what you need for online continuing education and online meetings. more information
Digital Learning Library
Any lecturer who has been involved in compiling learning materials is faced with the question how these materials can be archived and made available to other lecturers. In conjunction with the Swiss universities, SWITCHcollection offers a digital learning library for the re-use of learning materials.
An online platform for mutual exchange, coordination and information, all of which is centred on the subject of e-learning: this is what www.eduhub.ch offers, especially for employees in support centres at the Swiss universities and lecturers.
Send an SMS/Fax
Why not just key in a message via the keyboard to notify a colleague via a pager? Then a short SMS text message including fax afterwards? With SWITCHsms the message exchange works quickly and smoothlys.
