To record your lecture or event and/or stream it live can offer a lot of advantages:

- Inclusion: Students with different requirements are taken into account equally and barriers can be broken down.

- Family friendly: Studying with child gets easier.

- International students: Taking breaks, taking notes and going through the lecture according to your own needs or the possibility of repitition provides a big help.

- Flexibility: Students can catch up on the lecture to a for them convenient time and therefore can better adapt to their schedules.

- Overcome spatial barriers: Students who can't be present personally (due to room size, railway strike, sickness etc.) can still participate in the lecture.

- Conservation of resources and Reusability: Teachers can use lecture recordings as a valuable resource for future courses, e.g. as addition, in case of scheduling conflicts due to business trips or cancellations due to sickness.

- Repitition and deepening: Students have the possibility to watch difficult concepts or passages repeatedly and to understand what leads to a better deepening of the learning material.
