Case Study: ARD.ZDF medienakademie
Shaping the next Generation of Media Professionals from Home
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. To make these courses remotely accessible, all IT settings had to be made available as well. They needed a solution that was safe from a data protection perspective and that could be operated with relatively little effort and without installation by participants. The tool also had to meet the operational requirements of a total of 12 broadcasters and be easy to use for participants.
“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 realised that AnyDesk was the better choice.”
Olaf Schott, IT Subject Coordinator
