Microsoft Teams is a cloud platform that combines chat, meetings, video conferencing, notes, collaborative file editing and sharing, and to-do's. This supports teamwork, even with colleagues working from home office.

Software (SW-Shop, Lizenzen)
The easy-to-use, collaborative, online LaTeX editor Overleaf is available to all KIT employees and students. This software is a cloud service at overleaf.com. A portal has been set up for the KIT: www.overleaf.com/edu/kit
Webauftritte (Homepage, Domain)
The SCC is running the web content management system Open Text Website Management (formerly RedDot) for websites of KIT institutions. The term Content Management System (CMS) describes systems that allow the separation of editorial content, i.e. texts and images, and their presentation in the form of a layout and navigation structure.

The CMS Open Text Website Management enables easy creation and editing of web pages without programming knowledge and provides templates (standard frames) for this purpose. The templates can be changed in parts and thus form an individual appearance in KIT's corporate design.
