  • Integration of conference calls
  • Interaction through screen sharing, whiteboards, voting, ...
  • Access also for external guests without registration
  • Access also via mobile devices

The virtual meeting room supports text chat as well as sound and image transmission, so that "live e-learning" scenarios (e.g. live online seminars) can be implemented. Various tools enable collaboration between the participants and promote interactivity and collaboration.

What are the technical requirements?

  • Minimum requirements: PC with Internet access, a browser with Flash plug-in and sound output (usually available as standard)
