Instant Clutter-Free Real-Time Video and Web Collaboration with Kollaborate.io | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Kollaborate.io is a full-featured real-time collaboration app which allows you to instantly meet with customers, students or teammates without needing to login, install or download anything.


Kollaborate.io integrates video conferencing, VoIP, whiteboarding, document and image sharing, text chat, as well as the ability to auto-archive content and to easily invite other people into a meeting.


Whatever you load, resize or move on the collaboration desktop is also resized and repositioned for everyone else. Everyone sees the same thing.


One unique feature of Kollaborate.io is its clutter-free interface, which completely disappears in the background when it is not needed. 


Definitely worth a try.


Free version available.


Pro versions ($9.99 or $29.99/mo) provide ability to have private and password-protected meetings and with the more expensive plan, to access the archive and schedule meetings.

Compare and Evaluate Web Conferencing and Webinar Tools: The Online Meeting Tools Review | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Online Meeting Tools Review is a web-based service which allows you to compare side-by-side over 35 web conferencing and webinar tools. 


The free version allows you to access individual reviews and to compare up to four tools on a set of basic criteria with not much detail.


The Pro version is a downloadable PDF that includes comparison of whatever number of tools you have selected across 80 different features.


Price starts at $19 for in-depth comparison of 4 tools. Each additional tool added to the report is $4 more. 


P.S.: I have looked at some of the reviews and I have found them not to be as detailed and insightful as I would have expected. The data is there, but in some cases key advantages of a certain tool or technology over another are not highlighted at all. 


Well organized idea for an in-demand need, but information quality is not as good as it should be. 6/10

Updated Web Conferencing Tools Round-Up: 15 Good Alternatives

Updated Web Conferencing Tools Round-Up: 15 Good Alternatives | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it

If you are looking for a browsable round-up of web conferencing platforms and their main key characteristics and traits, you can take a pick at this article-report from Social Business Today.

It lists 15 web conferencing services while providing some useful complementary information for each one, including key features, availability of a trial, and pricing.

Consider this a basic reference to get an idea about differences between major services, but do not rely too heavily on it as my impression is that it is not fully updated and some of the info there contained is actually not correct or incomplete (pricing without correspondent information on what relative capacity it affords is useless) (I am also a bit skeptical in relying on sites that do not provide clear author info).


Still, if I had someone just ask me now where he could find a basic reference for some of the available web conferencing solutions I would suggest them to take a peek at this article.


...and if I had to make my recommendations among those listed, these are the three services I woud suggest you to consider:

a) GotoWebinar - my choice and favorite (yes, it's too expensive) 


b) Adobe Connect Pro - good price and good tools

c)  Yugma - free for up to 20 people
