Portal Software Lecture2Go
Lecture2Go is a media distribution software for universities and non-commercial institutions. The publishing of e-lectures at universities accompanies modern pedagogical concepts and is becoming an important part of eLearning.
In contrast to other providers like YouTube or Vimeo, the data sovereignty of the uploaded content is guaranteed by using one's own software on one's own servers.
The software runs on all major browsers and has been developed by a team from the Computer Center of the University of Hamburg on the basis of Liferay. The open source solution of Lecture2Go is customizable and can be tailored to your own needs and requirements. The design of the software can also be adapted to have the "look and feel" of your institution.
Based on Liferay and the Open Source Software Lecture2Go, developed by the University of Hamburg, other universities can use the media portal for their own e-lectures.
Role based concept
The role "Guest" is the basic role of the Lecture2Go portal. Guests have free access to all publicly available video material. Our goal is - according to the "open access" idea - to publish as many records freely accessible as possible.
- browse for open access videos
- media accessible in different formats (video, audio, text)
- access to chapters and comments
- share content or subscribe via rss
The role "Student" is derived from the "Guest" role. Students can comment video segments, which may be important for other students. If a video war released by the producer and the comment functionality was enabled, a link "comment to this video" appears above the video player.
- comment videos
Producers have special access rights and may publish new videos on the Lecture2Go portal. They work closely together with the coordinators of their faculty. To apply for this role, please contact your coordinator in charge.
