20200917 Online seminar about online teaching tools

On September 17, 2020, Dept. of Cybernetics organized an online seminar about the tools for distance teaching. During the meeting, MS Teams and VS Code were demonstrated by Ladislav Serédi (Dept. of Computer Science), BigBlueButton was presented by Petr Pošík (Dept. of Cybernetics).

The seminar was held in English, you can watch the seminar recording.

Apology from the main seminar organizer, Petr Pošík: “During the presentation of MS Teams, I did not manage to ensure that the MS Teams window is properly shared in Zoom and recorded for the whole time. As a result, a big part of the MS Teams presentation is missing from the recording, you can only hear the narration of Dr. Serédi. Due to that, the value of the first part of recording is greatly reduced. I am deeply sorry for that.”
