  2. Why Online Conferencing? • Allows people from multiple locations to meet virtually • Can share files and other documents • Saves money on travel costs and long-distance phone calls • Increases participation; anyone can be involved in a committee not just members that can travel • Can be used for both meetings and classes

  3. Common Features • Desktop Sharing • Invitation Features • Whiteboard • Instant-Messaging/Chat • Teleconferencing or VoIP • Video Conferencing • Multiple Presenters • Recording/Archives

  4. Considerations for Choosing Software • Required Software • Some tools require special software to be downloaded. Others only require a browser. • Price • Some tools are free. Others are subscription-based or require a one-time fee. • Security • Are you discussing private or confidential information? • Who can access the meeting? Is a login required? • Institution Requirements • How many people need to attend the meeting or class? • Free tools often have a limit on the number of participants and presenters. • What types of documents do you need to share?
