TeamViewer Supports Schools and Universities during COVID-19 Pandemic with Free Online Collaboration Solution

Goppingen, April 7, 2020– TeamViewer®, a leading global provider of secure remote connectivity solutions, now offers its online collaboration solution Blizz to all schools and universities free of charge. The free Blizz licenses can enable teachers and professors to hold interactive lessons in a virtual classroom environment with up to 50 participants via video and telephone connections to help schools manage the transition to remote learning.

Blizz is based on TeamViewer’s global connectivity platform and runs on all major computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, as well as a variety of operating systems. The cloud software enables video and audio conferencing even with low Internet connectivity and on older computing and mobile devices. For teaching purposes, teachers, pupils, professors and students can share their screen content with the class, exchange information via chats, share files and collaborate with onscreen annotations. Appointments for online lessons can be scheduled directly in the software and sent to participants by email.

“We hope that with this offer we can help simplify teaching during the coronavirus crisis,” said Oliver Steil, CEO, Teamviewer. “Although video conferences and screen sharing cannot replace the full classroom or lecture hall experience, Blizz can provide a platform for our educators and students to continue to learn and collaborate while maintaining a safe social distance.”
