A web conference is a meeting of more than one person held at the same time but in different physical locations using tools provided by the web. These tools allow the participants to view each other's screens. Although we can use web telephone facilities, we normally converse using a regular telephone line.
If you have a high-bandwidth connection to the web (such
as through DSL, Cable, Wireless, or T1 lines), then we can set up a “web
conference.” We can schedule them ahead of time, or we can generate
“quick meeting” while talking on the phone.
What Are We Using Them For?
What Can You Do With Web Conferences?
It certainly helps when you can see what the other person
sees! Describing screens can be as challenging as describing an elephant
when you are blind! Web conferences produce results in a hurry. You don't
have to e-mail your database to someone else. Set up a web conference
and show people the problem and the solution .
This is like having a personal visit without the expense and hassle. Save those reward miles for vacations. We can do a personal demonstration of the software or look over your shoulder as you work with sample or real data, do worksheets and reports, or anything the software can do!
We can answer questions as they come up in a give and take mode.
AND if there are several people attending the demonstration,
they can sit at their own computers and participate and not lean over
What Does it Take?
You must have an Internet connection. For practical use you need a high-bandwidth connection like DSL, Cable, T1, T3 . If you have a broadband wireless service like T-mobile , you can even attend while at Starbucks or Borders.
How Does It Work?
It’s not just a web conference. It can be coordinated with a phone conference or you can have a phone conference that is arranged independently of the web conference facility. Or you can have just a web conference.
