Sciebo and Gigamove closely inspected

The collaboration tools Sciebo and Gigamove are perfect for optimizing your workflow and sharing data/documents/content with others.

Did you know that you can also use sciebo to share content with external parties (not RWTH members)?

Through the free cloud service of the NRW universities “sciebo”, synchronizing and sharing files for digital collaboration with RWTH internal, other NRW universities but also RWTH external persons is no problem. With this service, even larger files can be worked on together. sciebo allows you to store data on a server and synchronize them on different devices as well as share them with others. By default, you have 30 GB of storage space at your disposal.
