FELIX, short for "Furtwangen E-Learning and Information eXchange", is the central learning platform for Furtwangen University (HFU). FELIX helps you with your studies by providing online access to learning materials, available anywhere and at any time. Various online tools (e.g. email groups, forums, file storage, etc.) also support collaborative work in project teams or learning groups.
Every semester, the Information and Media Centre's media production team records a wide range of different lectures (e.g. Studium Generale, Open University, Open Campus Tuttlingen, etc.) which are available for download at any time, from any location, and without restrictions. Many of the productions are available not only to university members but also to interested visitors. All recordings are stored in the HFU Mediathek.
In addition, a number of selected productions, such as "Erfolg um jeden Preis – Ethik in Beruf und Wirtschaft" (Success at any Cost – Ethics at Work and in Business) by Ulrich Wickert or "Die Kraft der Gedanken: Gehirn-Computer-Interaktion" (The Power of Thought: Brain-Computer Interaction) by Prof. Dr Niels Birbaumer, can be downloaded anywhere in the world from iTunes U.
MEMEO enables participation in online meetings. With MEMEO, wherever you are in the world, and no matterwhat operating system or mobile device you are using, you can attend online meetings at Furtwangen University. Every member of the university is entitled to use MEMEO. External visitors, also, can easily be invited to online meetings. This facilitates excellent student support even during external training or thesis preparation, effective project management without participants needing to be in one place, quick and easy communication with fellow students, the possibility of collaborating at short notice on presentations, questions regarding exam preparation, and so on.
