Last week’s post was from a colleague about using SABA Webconferencing and a colleague posted a comment about using Webex to meet and work with students. Here are some other resources available at ECU for meeting remotely with students, staff or faculty. They are
Lync – Available to students, faculty and staff, Lync integrates seamlessly with email, calendar and the ECU address book* to allow instant text messages, video conferences, online presentations and even group conferencing. Lync allows true collaborative desktop sharing among attendees for quick project edits and live brainstorming.
One of the most-requested Lync features is the ability to invite non-ECU participants to a meeting or presentation.
WebEx – PLEASE NOTE: WebEx has recently been approved for use with HIPAA information and is in the approval process for use with FERPA.
Collaborate with colleagues anywhere, anytime from the Web through a browser or mobile app. Share files, a presentation or just work through a project from where you are. Sharing your expertise is easy using Cisco WebEx.
