Research data archiving
As part of good scientific practice at the University of Leipzig, it is essential for research projects to ensure secure and sustainable archiving of the research data produced. The Research Data Archiving service at the URZ directly supports research projects in their efforts to conduct good research by providing the option of permanently archiving research data in the connected long-term repository OpARA. Here, research data can be published, archived and re-used.
Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi "eduroam")
Within the university, network access via Wi-Fi is possible at various locations or areas via the eduroam network, so that good Wi-Fi coverage can be offered. eduroam® also provides free access to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.
Access to the data network (LAN)
Within the University, workstations (PCs and notebooks) can also be connected directly to the university network via LAN cable. This enables fast access to network services such as mailing or internet.
Ad-hoc surveys with ARSnova
By using mobile devices (laptops, smartphones), ARSnova can be used as a voting tool in seminars, lectures or other events. You want to know whether the auditorium can follow your lecture? Use the feedback function of arsnova.voting. In this way, the interactivity between speaker and audience can be increased and events can be made more varied.
Computerarbeitsplatz im S 013 für (hochgradig) sehbehinderte Personen (Seminargebäude)
Im Computerpool für Sehgeschädigte im Neuen Seminargebäude in der Universitätsstraße 1, Raum S-013, bietet das Universitätsrechenzentrum der Universität Leipzig (URZ) barrierefreie Unterstützung für blinde und sehbehinderte Studierende sowie Beschäftigte der Universität an.
Create teaching-learning content as a portfolio with Mahara
Mahara is a software for creating and managing e-portfolios in an online community. E-portfolios use new media to implement the old concept of portfolios. E-portfolios are network-based collection portfolios that integrate various digital media and services. Students create and maintain an e-portfolio as a digital repository of the various materials and media they have created during a course or throughout their studies, as well as for self-presentation. Students can use the e-portfolio to demonstrate competences and reflect on their learning process. The materials created can be used as examination results.
Creating teaching videos with OpenCast
For the insertion of larger videos into a Moodle course, we provide our streaming server "OpenCast". Please note that the processing of larger videos can take up to one day. The principle of data economy applies. Please avoid producing large amounts of files so that participants with unstable internet connections can also access your videos.
Data Science with RStudio
RStudio offers a comprehensive integrated development environment for the programming language R for statistical calculations. The service allows access to our hardware resources and use of the extensive library of software.
Email box for employees
The University Computer Centre provides an email box (standard without Exchange including firstname.lastname@example.org) for employees of Leipzig University.
High Performance Computing (HPC)
The “High Performance Computing” service offers researchers at Leipzig University and their cooperation partners competent and problem-related advice for the implementation of complex scientific calculations that exceed local computing capacities. As part of the service, users are supported in carrying out complex scientific calculations (e.g. scientific simulations on protein folding, machine learning methods).
