Hauptfunktion(en): Citation managers

Zotero is an open-source research and citation manager for organising, citing, and sharing research materials. With Zotero, users can save references from web pages, PDFs, and other documents, and organise them into collections for easy retrieval and citation. It also supports different media files such as videos or audios. Zotero allows for collaborative research through common projects. It is free to use and offers additional storage through subscription plans. Users are required to sign up for an account to sync their library across multiple devices and collaborate with others. Zotero offers browser, desktop, and application versions. It was developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and is now operated by the non-profit Corporation for Digital Scholarship. Bewertung: Zotero is a useful tool for conducting research, together with storing, organising, and sharing results. For teachers, it can be a time-saving for sorting out teaching materials and additional academic resources, while students can use it to organise materials for projects. However, it is mainly employed by researchers as a research and citation manager. Zotero features lots of functionalities and does require familiarisation with the software and average IT skills.

Kosten: Free with registration + paid additional storage plans.

Benutzeroberfläche User-friendliness/complexity of the tool´s interface

A bit complex, it takes some time to get familiarised with all of Zotero’s features.

Zeiteffizienz Time needed for mastering the „how-to“ of the tool and a production of a task

Medium; it requires familiarisation but then becomes very time-efficient.

Sprache(n) der Benutzeroberfläche The number of languages in which the tool is currently available/adaptable to

30+ languages.

Datenschutz Does the tool require registration? Who can see my data? Can I remain anonymous?

High. Zotero collects different types of data, including user-provided information (e.g., name and email for account creation), library data (when users synchronise their library with Zotero servers), and attachment files for file syncing. Additionally, they log IP addresses and browser information for security and diagnostic purposes. These data collections serve various purposes, such as user account management yet neither marketing nor advertising. Zotero may share some personal data with third-party services for the running of the service, but it neither rents nor shares it. Concerning security, Zotero is designed as a local program when used in its desktop and applications versions, so by default, data is stored on users’ devices. However, when synchronisation or file syncing is enabled, then it is stored on Zotero servers. Zotero mentions taking security seriously and employing measures to protect user data. Zotero provides users with the ability to disable various automatic communications and preferences. Users can also delete their accounts, although specific details about data modification or access requests are not provided in the policy. Zotero does not state compliance with the GDPR.

TaskCards (Virtual pinboard for content creation/sharing and for collaborative working)

TaskCards is a GDPR-compliant digital platform which was specifically created for educational purposes. It helps create and manage virtual pinboards, i.e. canvases where content can be uploaded and shared. Users can create and customise their pinboards by attaching text, images, videos, links and files, together with changing their background and much more. The privacy settings of these pinboards - or parts of a pinboard - can later be modified. TaskCards offers a free limited version that allows users to have up to 2 pin boards. While teachers have to register to create pinboards, learners can access them directly via link or QR code. TaskCards is developed by the German firm dSign Systems GmbH.... Mehr erfahren
