Web Conferencing Episode
In this exciting continuation of synchronous communication tools, Alan and Emily showcase iLinc, DimDim and MeBeam. DimDim and MeBeam are free options. Other major players in the world of web conferencing tools include: Adobe Connect Pro, GoToMeeting, Elluminate and Wimba (who recently joined with Elluminate and Blackboard). Each company brings their own design, and set of tools to the game, yet most agree on webcam support (at least for the presenter), voice audio, chat, whiteboard, and screensharing. As a relatively new form of communication we are excited to explore the possibilities.
