Live Meeting Available for Desktop Web Conferencing

More faculty and staff are trying Live Meeting for desktop-to-desktop Web conferencing, and the feedback is positive.

Compared to Wimba, Live Meeting:

  • is simpler to use when you're the presenter
  • has a brighter screen rather than an overall gray look
  • can be used with colleagues outside the NDUS Microsoft Online Services system
  • can be joined with just the click on a link rather than going through multiple steps to get to a room.

However, Live Meeting:

  • is not compatible with Mac computers
  • doesn't include a participant-to-participant chat function.

Both Live Meeting and Wimba:

  • can be used for webinars to share information
  • can be used for collaborative work, such as writing or editing a grant together live online
  • can be a free replacement for phone calls.
