Online meetings are live online formats for teaching courses or group meetings. Usually, web conference systems are used for the technical implementation of online meetings. They offer a virtual space where all particpants can meet each other.

You can use the following web conferencing systems for online meetings at the TU Darmstadt.
As a rule, participants receive a link from the meeting organiser through which they can enter the online meeting room and are then listed there as participants – with corresponding possibilities for interaction (audio, video, chat, etc.).
Further details can be found on the pages of the respective web conferencing systems – see above.
The level of interaction in online meetings usually depends on the size of the group. The larger the group, the greater the challenge. This results in different implementation variants.
In addition, the web conferencing systems Zoom and DFNconf also allow live streaming. In this case, participants also receive a link to view the live stream, but they do not join the online room. This means that you as the organiser do not see any participants at that moment. The level of interaction with the live stream is zero to low.
