    • Wikisend Instant ConferenceBig Marker EDU 539 – Computers in EducationProfessor William Rhinaman
      By KLM – Team 2 – Kristin Jordan, Laura Humbert, and Michelle Paonessa
    • Introduction to Web 2.0 Tools
      We researched and reviewed 3 different tools
      Instant Conference
      Big Marker
    • Wikisend is a file sharing service. It shows a welcoming, colorful interface.However, looks can be deceiving. Compared to other services we have used, it seems slow and tedious.
    • Instant Conference is a conference call solution. It offers 4 plan choices, from free to $49.95 a month. Registration was easy and upgrading to another plan is very accessible. Various options are offered, including recording, Outlook scheduling and easy to view web directions.
    • Big Marker is a web conference site. Similar to Blackboard, video and desktops can be shared. Conferences can be recorded. Participants can raise their hands or point at an item in the presentation. Big Marker even translates to a foreign language during the conference.
    • Additional Features
      Selling seats to your conference.
      In addition to using it as a business meeting, Big Marker allows a presenter to sell seats. This works well for training and marketing presentations.
      Your fans can even “follow” you to know when the next conference will occur.
    • What do we not like?
      Not beneficial to education:
      Limited number of file transmissions (uploads & downloads; files deleted after a certain period of time)
      Other programs more useful (GoogleDocs, MediaFire, etc.)
      Instant Conference
      Although easy to use it is better suited to business platforms
      High cost factor not always attainable for schools
    • What do we like?
      Big Marker
      Allows conference attendance without travel
      Lectures are easily integrated for non-traditional learning styles
      Interactive features (discussion boards, real time discussions, etc.)
    • Conclusion
      Overall, we could see Big Marker being utilized in schools as a training tool for teachers and staff in addition to providing alternative distance learning courses to students.
      Wikisend is not inclusive enough and comes with limitations.
      Instant Conference is not feasible for schools on budget constraints.
