Symbol of people communicating around the world

Web conferencing allows you to share voice, video, and screens with others using a variety of devices, including:

  • desktop computers
  • laptops
  • mobile devices (iOS and Android)

...pretty much anywhere you have good networking bandwidth:

  • a classroom
  • a conference room
  • your office
  • at home
  • on the road

The product that makes this possible is called GoToMeeting.

So, what can we do with web conferencing?

On the business/administrative side:

  • Keep projects moving  - by communicating with people or bringing them into meetings no matter where they are.
  • Save travel expenses - meet on the web instead of flying.
  • Webinars - let the world know what you have to offer with informative webinars that thousands can watch around the world.
  • Training - show people how to do things live on the web.
  • Outreach - phones and face-to-face meetings are great, but meeting live on the web is becoming increasingly popular with the digital generation.
  • Position searches - reach a wider field of applicants with live interviews.

"GoToMeeting on the Mac® is a dynamic combination, pairing the easy-to-use Control Panel with the simplicity of the Mac. I have found meetings extremely easy to set up, schedule with others, and run. The new VoIP capability works perfectly on my MacBook Pro – and actually sounds better (and is easier to access) than a normal conference bridge."

On the academic side:

  • Online office hours - anytime/anywhere meeting with students.
  • Tutorial sessions - you and students can work together on problems.
  • Group projects - help students work together at a distance on projects.
"With GoToMeeting, I can instantly help up to 25 students at a time from home or my office – it's much easier than meeting students individually during set times on campus. My students learn more and perform better meeting online with GoToMeeting."
