The Center for Digital Systems – Your Point of Contact for E-Learning, E-Research, and Multimedia
The Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) is the center of competence for e-learning, e-research, and multimedia at Freie Universität Berlin. CeDiS provides advice and support to all institutions and members of the university for using digital media and technologies in teaching and research activities.
E-Learning elements are an integral component of teaching activities at Freie Universität Berlin. CeDiS offers central services as well as a range of advising and training options on the topic of e-learning and is actively involved in supporting the university-wide spread of digital teaching and learning methods.
This area of the center’s work focuses on the use of digital media and technologies in the research segment. CeDiS develops collaborative online portals, digital research and presentation environments, and publication solutions for the humanities and social sciences (“e-humanities”).
CeDiS offers training sessions and continuing education programs on teaching, learning, and performing research with digital media and technologies. The goal of these courses is to enable participants to utilize online elements in their own teaching activities.
Geared toward the principle of open access – free access to scientific and academic information – our offerings encompass advice and assistance with publication projects as well as technological implementation of electronic publication solutions.
What the audiovisual media division offers includes not only advice, but also a broad range of services such as recording of courses, lectures, presentations, and conferences, production of animated and teaching videos, and creation of promotional or presentation videos and trailers.
Visual design of digital and analog products is at the heart of this division’s work. This includes websites, teaching, and learning environments, animations, research platforms, corporate design concepts, and various printed materials and presentations.
