Jitsi is an open-source video conferencing platform and not intended for e-learning scenarios.
Due to demand, we have put local Jitsi servers into operation at both locations. Jitsi is intended to enable meetings for small groups (max. about 10 people) when a DFN videoconference room is not available. It is possible to create and participate in a video conference with any workstation computer equipped with a webcam and microphone (better headset). For mobile operating systems the APP Jitsi Meet is available in the Appstores. Every employee can create a conference room with his or her university ID. Anyone who knows the name (link) of the room can participate in a conference.
IMPORTANT: Understandably, we do not have extensive experience with the operation of Jitsi, as this platform was installed at short notice. We cannot foresee how much traffic will be generated in the next weeks and therefore cannot give any concrete performance forecasts.
To create a conference room, proceed as follows:
Please also note that many factors influence the "user experience" of a virtual event in meeting scenarios of this kind:
