Web conferencing is an online solution for holding live meetings, webinars and sharing video. A wired or wireless device and an Internet connection are the only requirements.

All of our web conferencing solutions support both voice and video conferencing, as well as other features, including Q & A, polling, shared annotation, discussions, shared whiteboards, screen sharing and much more. In addition, some of our solutions integrate with our Teaching & Learning spaces.
