  • 3. Answers to the Essential Questions
    What are the benefits of video conferencing?
    Video conferencing allows team members to meet face-to-face regardless of their physical location.
    Video conferencing allows for a more personal interaction between participants than traditional teleconferencing does.
  • 4. Answers to the Essential Questions
    Why would an organization use video conferencing applications?
    Video conferencing applications allow organizations to reduce the need for meeting space as well as opening the doors for collaboration among team members from across the country, if not the world.

  • 11. Summary of Experience of Use
    SkypeTM
    Go To MeetingTM
    Skype group video chat is very smooth if all participants have a fast Internet connection.
    Audio is of high quality even without a fast Internet connection.
    Screen sharing works very well.
    All users must have the Skype client installed.
    Better for individual users as client is free.
    GoTo Meeting is a functional piece of software that allows users to participate even if they do not have the software.
    Better for software demonstrations or corporate uses due to cost.
  • 12. Final Thoughts
    Both Skype and GoTo Meeting have their plusses. However, I feel that in a education setting, Skype is the superior product due to the fact that it is free to call from computer to computer.
    GoTo Meeting requires a paid account to initiate meetings where any one with the Skype client can initiate meetings.
