A great new Video Conferencing has recently came out that is completely free to use. Zoom.us lets you have a video conference with up to 15 users. This can be done on your computer or IPad.
You don't even have to have a special account to use this. To start, you can log in with your district email address and password to start a session. Others that connect do not need to log in.
- HD/High Quality Video Quality
- Active Speaker is automatically put on the big screen using voice recognition
- Ability to share your screen
- Private Chat
I have tested this service, and was impressed with the video and audio quality. As with any video conferencing, I always recommend using a headset with mic for the best audio quality. A standard mic and speakers will work, but you need to be careful about feedback.
This service would work great for meetings or even as homework help lines. Check it out.
