Web conferencing

Web conferencing is used to conduct live meetings, training, or presentations via the Internet. In a web conference, each participant sits at his or her own computer and is connected to other participants via the internet. This can be either a downloaded application on each of the attendees' computers or a web-based application where the attendees access the meeting by clicking on a link distributed by e-mail (meeting invitation) to enter the conference. - Wikipedia

It is recognised that no one web conferening tool can currently meet the needs of all users and/or levels of connectivity. REACTAdobe Connect and Bridgit are some of the web conferening tools that are used at present within NSWDEC schools. More and more web conferencing apps can run on desktop and laptop computers as well as many mobile devices. (Direct link)
