5 comments to Free web conferencing – ups and downs

    Helpful list. I’m going to check out a few. I’ve never tried a free form of conferencing.
    Although it’s not free, I gotta say I really like RHUB web conferencing and remote support. I attended a meeting and they have a no download option so it allows you to view the conference straight from the browser which I thought was really neat. And of course they had annotation, whiteboard, recording ability, etc.
    I’m thinking of investing in one of their products but for now free is good!

    Hi Jerry,

    RHUB does look interesting as a corporate answer. Thanks for that link. The tools I’m looking at are mostly suited for individuals and small businesses in their free forms (though each do seem to have their corporate versions as well).

    Thanks for stopping by. If you try out these tools, please stop back and let us know what you thought.

    By the way, Jerry… I wasn’t paying attention when I approved your comment so I didn’t catch it until just now, but I don’t approve of salesmen who don’t disclose that they are salesmen. You work for the RHUB company, according to your email address, and your name might be Steve, not Jerry. As a punishment for your dishonesty, I’m removing the links from your post. I’ll leave the post there for no reason other than it makes me feel good to see a comment on this post.

    That is a GREAT post on conferencing, which is really gaining speed in the market. I can recommend a great conferencing guide for newbees to use when figuring out how to get started. The “Quick Start Guide for Web Conferencing”, which I got on Amazon.com, got me up and running in about 25 minutes:

    http://www.amazon.com/Web-Conferencing-Quick-Start-Guide/dp/1448649781/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250795732&sr=8-1

    I read that the http://www.webconferencingcouncil.com had a non-technical relative of equipped with a a Dell E6400 with Windows XP, complete with built-in camera & microphone test this book to see if it was truly a quick start. This relative was able to start a multi-point meeting in 17 minutes, was able to share her desktop and present an online presentation (Microsoft PowerPoint) in under 25 minutes, and even started using the voting and whiteboarding features within 30 minutes – all of it witnessed but uncoached. I was a little bit faster but I am more technical than most.

    Thanks, Brian (Hodges?). What do you think of the free services being offered these days, like the ones in the article? How do you think they stack up against the paid services?
