Shaping the next generation of media professionals from home
About ARD und ZDF Medienakamdemie
The non-profit educational institution ARD.ZDF medienakademie offers webinars and courses for continuing education in the media sector. From employees of the ARD, ZDF, Deutschlandradio and Deutsche Welle broadcasting stations to private individuals, anyone interested can choose from the large pool of open topics that range from personal skills and journalistic background knowledge to software training for audio and video production or IT training.
Special software for a controlled IT environment
Software trainings at ARD.ZDF medienakademie, for example for video editing software, usually take place in a special IT environment on-site in Nuremberg. In order to make the secourses remotely accessible, all IT settings had to be made available as well.
"We needed a solution that was okay from a data protection perspective and that could be operated with relatively little effort and without installation by participants," says Olaf Schott. The tool also had to meet the operational requirements of a total of 12 broadcasters and be easy to use for participants.
Olaf Schott, IT Subject Coordinator:
"Finding a platform that met the operational needs of 12 stations was a huge challenge. The trainers got on very well and very quickly with AnyDesk. Even participants who initially thought it made more sense to have the software on their own PC realized that AnyDesk was the better choice."
AnyDesk is easy to use and securely encrypted
With AnyDesk, the special IT environment within the academy can be made available to every participant, no matter where they are located. The deciding factor is AnyDesk's high security standards, especially the excellent end-to-end encryption. Latency is unparalleled, which is essential, especially for video editing.
