Online Meeting FOC09

Filed under: Uncategorized — rosannew @ 3:13 pm

I am hosting my online meeting on Tuesday at 8pm using DimDim. I have really enjoyed experimenting with DimDim and find it very user friendly. It ends out automatic invites, you can share your computer screen and link to a website. It allows up to 3 audio only though, so people coming to my meeting will have to use the chat function instead. It also allows for a webcam to be used. The recording of the sessions is clear and you also get a transcript of the chat sessions. I am not planning to use the webcam for the meeting. Oh the other thing you can do when you are hosting the meeting is hand over control to anyone else in the meeting and then take it back whenever you want. It also has a function where the peron hosting the meeting sends an email to invited people saying the meeting has started. All in all, I quite like DimDim.
Here are my meeting details:
