Notes of the CDO on online teaching

In the current exceptional situation we have to switch completely to online learning in the home environment - even though many of us have never had the opportunity to establish or at least test digital learning scenarios. Despite, or perhaps because of the crisis, particular care must be taken to ensure that the course is well thought-out and that overhasty actionism and tool fetishism are avoided.

On the following pages you can expect suggestions for a goal-oriented design:

Text modules on copyright and personality protection in distance learning

The following text modules are given to the teachers as a hint for the participants of the Distance Learning; they can be published for example at a suitable place on the used learning platform or with the teaching materials.


For copyright reasons or for reasons of personal protection it is not permitted to record the courses transmitted online within the framework of Distance Learning without the express permission of the lecturer. In the case of event formats in which contributions by other participants are also put online, the recording is also dependent on their consent.

If media (texts, images, videos etc.) are made available online for teaching purposes, they are generally protected by copyright and may only be used for the intended group of participants, for the purpose and to the extent that the lecturer has made these media available for teaching purposes. Unauthorized distribution/copying/publication of such media generally constitutes a violation of copyright and may be punished by penalties and claims for damages.
