With “Unispectrum live”, the traditional print magazine of the TU Kaiserslautern “Unispectrum” has got a digital sister. Since then, “Unispectrum live” has been reporting up close on the everyday life of scientists and students as well as on campus life. Readers can expect exciting insights into current research projects, interesting portraits of study programs and professions, and stories from everyday life at the university. And all this digitally – on the computer, tablet or cell phone.
Those who register as users have the option of “following” individual topics, i.e., staying up to date on the selected categories and topics via newsletters. The categories “study,” “research,” “further education,” “life” and “work” are available for selection.
With the introduction of a digital magazine, the university is responding to young people’s media consumption habits and digital lifestyle. The online magazine allows quick clicks instead of flipping through the print magazine. Readers can not only consume passively, but have the opportunity to share, comment and recommend articles via social networks. An electronic magazine can encompass much more than a print magazine: For examples, articles can be supplemented with videos and podcasts. According to the topic, press releases, campus articles and campus maps can be linked to the word articles. This provides additional reading appeal.
