Basic Support for Cooperative Work (BSCW) is an additive for asynchronous cooperation via Internet. Texts, presentations and other file formats are placed on a WWW accessible server, so that everyone with an internet connection may take part in the corporate work, an appropriate browser and the right access authorization.
The BSCW server is available for the members of the institutes of RWTH. For purposes related to teaching it can be used for free. This service is provided by Centre for Information and Media Services (CIM) of Duisburg Essen University to RWTH Aachen University in the frame of “Ressourcenverbund NRW (RV-NRW) (de)”.
