Lectures are a fundamental part of university teaching. However, monologues of lecturers and passively listening students are known to be less conducive to learning. That is the reason for trying to introduce activating learning methods in lectures for decades. Especially for mass lectures it is useful to deploy e-learning software enabling students to ask questions to be answered by teachers, assistants, and students. The presented system called Q&A 2.0 addresses two particular challenges that were insufficiently met so far. First, it supports users to ask and answer questions in the questions’ contexts and to link them with the learning material. Secondly, it allows seamless transitions to asynchronous forms of learning, i.e. to the period after a lecture.
