There are different types of web-based, face-based, real-time communication tools, and they provide similar online experiences to the user. Still, in terms of the purpose, size, scalability, and degree of interactivity, each one can be quite different.
Let start talking about web conferencing, a real-time, “face-based” meeting or training, including people in different locations. You might use this way to communicate with your family or friends in a one to one base using Facetime or WhatsApp. In the working space, this type of virtual gathering with an educational purpose, may not have a leader/presenter and are meant to support smaller numbers than a webinar. Think about this option as the one to share content in a collaborative way, where you want to provide the participants with a more interactive space than webinars and webcasts.
This activity will provide you with a list of some of the best video conferencing software, the overall capabilities description, and the free versions available.
