Video conferences

A conference system based on BigBlueButton with the frontend Greenlight is available to you at any time. This system allows multipoint conferences with integration of teaching materials (slides etc.), e.g. for tutorials or group meetings. Thanks to the connection to the LDAP, users of IT can log in directly and conveniently create or join conference rooms using the HTML5 interface in their web browser:

Please note the following points:

  • If you are a student: Please be advised that you do not need an account here. The teaching staff will advise you how to connect to BBB sessions. You only need to login here if you want to host a video conference.
  • Please use this system only for study- or work-related tasks. As the resources of this server are limited, these tasks must have priority as long as we are all depending on digital communications. Please do not use this service for private reasons.
  • If you record conferences, the system needs quite some time to process the recording. Only after this processing has been completed will the recordings appear at the bottom of the room overview in which you made the recording. This processing can take a few minutes to several hours, depending on the current use of the system and the length / scope of your recording.
  • Use your computer science ID to log into the server (without specifying a domain, just username / password). Conference participants only get a link and an optional access code for the conference, only you as the conference creator have to log in.
  • If you cannot apply for an IT account, please use the register button at the top right to register with an email address that comes from the DNS domain of the Univ. Bonn or one of the partner institutions affiliated with the Institute for Computer Science. All other unknown or external accounts are removed automatically and without further warning.
