This is yet another great tool to take advantage of when collaborating. Not only is it free for up to 10 connections but everyone has access to it and it's easy to use.

Create Persistent Collaboration Rooms To Chat & Videoconference with Ninchat

Create Persistent Collaboration Rooms To Chat & Videoconference with Ninchat | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



Ninchat is a web service which offers you the ability to create one or more persistent, online collaboration rooms, where you can text chat and videoconference with up to 12 people concurrently.


Collaborations rooms, or channels, created with Ninchat integrate text, video conferencing and file sharing via Dropbox. These rooms can be set to be "public" or "private" depending on your needs.


The chat history is "infinite" and fully searchable, allowing for effective  asynchronous exchanges, and messages can be exchanged also privately between individual users.


All Ninchat communications are SSL encrypted, there is an open API to extend and customize this service, and the service works across desktop computer and tablets/smartphones (Android only for now).


Basic plan free to use (2 rooms).


Higher pricing plans go from a "Small" 5-room option at $15/mo up to "large" for 30-rooms at $70/mo.

Dena Patrick|Wishadoo's comment, April 29, 2013 9:07 AM
I greatly appreciate these posts, Robin. I'm trying to find the best platform to have a series of online presentation/conversations and feel rather overwhelmed. I need the ability to present material, have live interaction in various forms (video, phone and text/chat), and record the sessions. Free or low cost, as well. I've assumed Google Hangouts would be the best choice but I greatly appreciate the other options you're presenting.

Glad to be of help Dena.

Instant Browser-Based Three-Party Video-Conferencing with GoToMeeting Free

Instant Browser-Based Three-Party Video-Conferencing with GoToMeeting Free | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



GoToMeeting Free is a new free web-based app (in the form of a Chrome extension for now) which allows you to run video-conferencing meetings for up to three people, without needing to download, install or register anything.


GoToMeeting Free takes advantage of the new WebRTC protocol which allows new browsers to connect directly to each other in a P2P fashion and to be able to carry out audio-video communications without the need for additional software or plugins.


The interface is minimal, offering only a few buttons to mute video or audio and to invite other persons in your video chat.


My comment: Straightforward, easy-to-use, free video-conferencing tool makes it very easy to video chat in small groups without problems.



Free to use.
