Web conferancing

  1. 1. Web Conferencing By Nabendu Maji Bharati Vidyapeeth UniversityInstitute Of Management And Entrepreneurship Development MBA-G, B, 73 1
  2. 2. Definition• Web conferencing refers to a service that allows conferencing events to be shared with remote locations. The service allows information to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations in nearly real-time.• Applications for web conferencing include meetings, training events, lectures, or short presentations from any computer. A participant can be either an individual person or a group. 2
  3. 3. What is Web conferencing? 3
  4. 4. History• Real-time text chat facilities such as IRC appeared in the late 1980s. Web-based chat and instant messaging software appeared in the mid-1990s. In the late 1990s, the first true web conferencing capability became available and dozens of other web conferencing venues followed thereafter.• A trademark for the term "webinar" was registered in 1998 by Eric R. Korb (Serial Number 75478683, USPTO) but was difficult to defend; it is currently assigned to InterCall.• Web conferencing started with Plato, a small standalone system that supports a single class of terminals connected to a central computer. 4
  5. 5. Features & Applications• Slide show presentations - where images are presented to the audience and markup tools and a remote mouse pointer are used to engage the audience while the presenter discusses slide content.• Live or Streaming video - where full motion webcam, digital video camera or multi-media files are pushed to the audience.• VoIP - (Real time audio communication through the computer via use of headphones and speakers)• Web tours - where URLs, data from forms, cookies, scripts and session data can be pushed to other participants enabling them to be pushed though web based logons, clicks, etc. This type of feature works well when demonstrating websites where users themselves can also participate. 5
  6. 6. Features & Applications• Meeting Recording - where presentation activity is recorded on the client side or server side for later viewing and/or distribution.• Whiteboard with annotation (allowing the presenter and/or attendees to highlight or mark items on the slide presentation. Or, simply make notes on a blank whiteboard.)• Text chat - For live question and answer sessions, limited to the people connected to the meeting. Text chat may be public (echoed to all participants) or private (between 2 participants).• Polls and surveys (allows the presenter to conduct questions with multiple choice answers directed to the audience) 6
  7. 7. Features & Applications• Screen sharing/desktop sharing/application sharing- (where participants can view anything the presenter currently has shown on their screen. Some screen sharing applications allow for remote desktop control, allowing participants to manipulate the presenters screen, although this is not widely used.)Web conferencing is often sold as a service, hosted ona web server controlled by the vendor. Offerings vary pervendor but most hosted services provide a cost per userper minute model, a monthly flat fee model and a seatmodel. Some vendors also provide a server side solutionwhich allows the customer to host their own webconferencing service on their own servers. 7
  8. 8. Deployment models• Web conferencing is available with three models: hosting service, software and appliance.• An appliance, unlike the online hosted solution, it is offered as hardware. It is also known as "in-house" or "on-premise" web conferencing. It is used to conduct live meetings, remote training, or presentations via the Internet. 8
