Online Meeting Services

What is an online meeting?

An ‘online meeting’ can mean many different things to different people. It can be a webinar, web meeting, web conferencing, video conference – even a Skype call.

What do these all have in common? Generally audio dropouts and disengaged participants.

An online meeting is a live virtual environment where:

  • participants can join the online meeting by dialling in & participating over an internet connection – from either a desktop, laptop or any internet-enabled device such as a smartphone or tablet.
  • if the host or any participants dials in over an internet connection, they can share, view, upload and record visuals and also hear the audio (via VoIP, which stands for Voice-over-Internet Protocol. In layman terms, this is simply a phone service over the Internet).
  • participants can also join via audio through any traditional telephone – e.g. a landline, any mobile phone, or Polycom.
  • participants collaborate real-time over features such as document & screen sharing, whiteboards, video sharing,  polls, question and answer, file sharing and more.
