Interwise iMeeting, a Web-Conferencing Tool, is Now Available!
January 9, 2006
Are you looking for a way to effectively communicate and collaborate with dispersed individuals? Beginning this month, Interwise iMeeting, a web conferencing tool that allows participants at dispersed locations to communicate and collaborate in real-time via voice and shared content, is available to the WPI community.
Possible uses of Interwise iMeeting are:
- Invite remote guest speakers to speak to students in a class or to speak at campus events
- Conduct meetings with remote project teams
- Have students in distance learning classes participate in live, optional discussions or presentations
- Office hours or help sessions
Interwise iMeeting features:
- real-time sharing of content, including PowerPoint slides, Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, images, and video and audio files
- two-way audio, allowing all participants in the event to speak and hear each other
- application sharing, which allows a presenter or participant to share any application running on his or her computer
- polling of participants
- web sessions, which allow the event presenter to display and markup a web page and give participants a chance to explore a website
- text chat capabilities, either one-to-many or one-to-one
- video conferencing, allowing participants with Web cams to transmit their image to the rest of the participants
- recording capabilities, making a recorded version of the event available to individuals who cannot attend the live event
- easy scheduling through a Web-based interface or Microsoft Outlook
Two types of sessions are scheduled in January and February for those who are interested in learning more about iMeeting and those who are interested in using it. See the listings below in the “Professional Development Opportunities” section of this newsletter for details on the sessions.
Also, an Interwise iMeeting Help Site is now online. The site includes information on what you need to use Interwise, how-to documents that show you how to use it, and technical information. Please note that if you want to be able to schedule and present iMeeting events, you must attend training by the ATC. See the sessions listed below for details.Maintained by firstname.lastname@example.org
