Description

"Free Online Synchronous Meeting Tools" will provide participants an overview of the various tools currently available to meet with individuals or groups remotely.  Divided into modules, this course is comprised of lectures, weblinks and supplemental resources.  Each meeting tool lecture walks participants through the set-up process, user interface, and further discusses the pros and cons of the available features. 

At the end of this course, you will be familiar with Join.Me, Google Hangouts, Web Burner, and Zoom and how to incorporate each one into your daily tasks. Using synchronous meeting tools is a great way to become more efficient, gain name recognition, connect with your colleagues, and explain complex concepts.
