Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo

Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Gruveo is a secure and free web app which allows you to easily start a video-conference session with anyone without needing to register, download, install or login anything. 

To start a video session you simply input a numeric code (of three or more digits) of your choice on the Gruveo home page and then communicate that code to anyone you want to video call. That's it. Your computer and the other device will automatically create a direct connection allowing your video conversation to start instantly.

An excellent solution for instant video calls that require zero set-up time and which may benefit from secure encrypted communication and anonymity.

Free to use.

Collaborative Free P2P Screen-Sharing for Macs and PCs with ScreenHero

Robin Good's insight:

ScreenHero is a downloadable app for Windows and Mac computers that allows you to collaborate one-on-one on the same app with someone else at a distance.

ScreenHero has recently added full support for Windows PCs and it now integrates a voice feature allowing you also to talk with the person you are collaborating with.

Your login credentials and session data are fully encrypted using a P2P TLS scheme (SSL based).

ScreenHero operates as a P2P app, allowing parties to hook up directly to one another, and resorting to its centralized servers only when a direct connection is not possible for some reason.

My comment: An excellent screen-sharing tool for distributed teams. If you regularly operate with someone else at a distance and you need to easily and reliably share screens to see and edit drafts, mock-ups, presentations or code, ScreenHero is a great resource.

N.B.: If you are on a PC you will need a recent version of Windows, as PCs with Vista and earlier Windows versions are not supported.

Free version available.

Co-Browse Any Web Page Instantly with Surfly

Robin Good's insight:

Surfly is a new web-based app which allows you co-browse any web page while being able to show and see each other live cursor in real-time.

You can invite multiple attendees, and each one of them can see your selected web pages no matter what kind of device or screen size they have. As you scroll the page, they see it scrolling too.

To start a session you simply share a URL with those who you want to invite. No software to download or install. No need to even to register or login. 

My comment: The best, easiest and most convenient tool to co-browse and collaborate over any web page at a distance. It works instantly. Nothing to do make it work. Simplicity and immediacy win over features.

API available. 

Free to use.

Internet ha transformado nuestras vidas. Es con mucho una de las revoluciones más importantes que ha experimentado la humanidad y va a seguir cambiando nuestra sociedad en los próximos años.Sin duda la red nos ofrece innumerables oportunidades y es una herramienta indispensable que tiende a reducir las diferencias entre aquellos que tenemos la suerte de vivir en el denominado primer mundo.En nuestra avanzada sociedad, pese a existir aún reductos de marginación y pobreza, los problemas más acuciantes tienen mucho que ver con la educación de los niños.La falta de valores y referentes está marcando de forma indeleble el comportamiento de nuestros hijos. Y el ámbito donde mejor se mueven es precisamente el de la red, donde también es necesario regirse por unos valores y referentes que les permitan atajar los problemas con los que se van a encontrar día a día.La intimidad propia y ajena debe ser un concepto que los chicos deben tener claro.Los límites de lo que pueden subir a la red deben conocerlos y deben saber que la verdadera amistad es mucho más que un amigo virtual.Las consecuencias de una burla en la red son demoledoras e infinitas por definición.Es perfectamente posible que un desconocido pueda contactar con un menor y es una realidad incuestionable que los niños pasan demasiadas horas delante del ordenador sin hacer deporte, sin leer un buen libro y sin un adulto de referencia que le ayude a discriminar lo que le conviene de lo que no.Y por supuesto pueden acceder a contenidos claramente inadecuados para su edad. La red es algo cotidiano en nuestras vidas y algo indispensable en la de nuestros hijos.Es nuestra responsabilidad educarles en el buen uso de la misma y ejercer la patria potestad también en el mundo virtual. Un mundo donde los problemas son absolutamente reales.
