      No landline calls
      No video recording feature
    • Recommendations
      I recommend ooVoo
      For small group conferencing that doesn’t exceed 12 people (mixed audio & visual)
      For groups who need to record their conversation
      And if the video or call conferences is their main requirement
    • Recommendations
      I strongly recommend dimdim because:
      It offer more featurs than ooVoo
      It could be for smaller group or large group like a class or an event that have up to 1000 attendee
      It gives the user a wide range of file sharing such as screen, web browsing, & presentation
      It has a various ways of communication from audio & video chat as a group or send IM to an individuals
      It doesn’t need any downloads of the program or install any application to support it
    • Recommendation (dimdim cont’)
      Its cost effective for the benefit that you get in relation to the price you pay
      It could also be used for group projects as the group member could search resources together and exchange file while the video conference
      It doesn’t require specific OS
      The website offer all the required information including organization that uses it.
      It has an open sources edition that other similar sites doesn’t offer
      Could be incorporated with other site such as FaceBook
      It provide a variety of technical support
