Worldwide Access on the Global Campus 21 and Data security

For years, Saba Meeting has successfully improved communication and collaboration on the GC21 platform. It has proved its worth as a web-conference software, trhough its unceasing support and efficient supplementation of the GC21′s E-Learning products. The GIZ operates its very own Saba-Server; This way, it is unnecessary to outsource personal data. Users who want to participate in Saba activities can log in with their GC21 username, ensuring a convenient connection between the two platforms – GC21 for E-Learning and E-Collaboration and Saba Meeting, for online conferences. Most of the online conferences in Saba Meeting can be directly accessed from the virtual classrooms of the GC21. This is especially convenient for the user.
