We use vitero in the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering for online lectures, online meetings and collegiate online tutorials in addition to our conventional e-learning activities.
Especially fascinating is the user interface layout of the virtual meeting room which allows for an intuitive handling of the system. The students could follow the lectures straightaway, an extensive introduction was not necessary.
I especially like the possibility to allocate tasks via exercise sheets and the creation of working groups which solve tasks in the adjoining rooms and then present the solutions in the main room.
As Senior Research Fellow of the VDWF (Confederation of German Tool Manufacturers and Mould Makers) I see an enormous potential for business companies which want to bundle their activities. vitero enables them to conduct their technical coordination without travel costs and lost journey time.
