This is great news!  I've been using Skype for years and this has been an issue for me.  The ability to connect several users at the same time through video conferencing at the free level opens up some great opportunities for online meetings that are still Face-to-Face.  I hope this is integrated into their smartphone app as well!

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.

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.

We can also share the information through the video webcams. It just doesn't have to written words or voices, it could also be a video message that you are willing to share. Such as Youtube, this is why the reason why Youtube is such a successful curation site.

LAS NUEVAS CHARLAS QUE ENCONTRAMOS EN EL SIGLO XXI...

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.

Real-Time Co-Working Over Any Web App with Sugarbox

Robin Good's insight:



Sugarbox is a free web app which allows you to share any web app you are working on with anyone you wish to collaborate with.


To use it, you simply go to the web app, open it and then click on the Sugarbox bookmarklet, and you are ready to invite anyone to co-work with you, in real-time, on that app.


Once you are collaborating with someone you can see their cursor and their name in real time. You can text chat and annotate the screen.


A unique feature also allows you to easily record what's being shown on the screen, including your cursor movements, and can be easily shared with anyone. 


My comment: Excellent resource if you want to collaborate in real-time with someone else on the same app. 


Free to use.

Persistent Team Collaboration Workspace Integrates Always-on Videoconferencing: Sqwiggle

Persistent Team Collaboration Workspace Integrates Always-on Videoconferencing: Sqwiggle | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Sqwiggle is a new real-time collaboration platform which allows you to meet persistently and videoconference easily with your distributed team, as well as to have a group messaging stream that keeps you updated on everything happening.


Sqwiggle has been designed to be a persistent real-time collaboration tool, meaning, that it is ideally used to bring closer, as if they were side-by-side, teammates that work at different locations by remaining always-on and by making extremely easy to switch on the the audio-video communication.


This is why you can turn on Sqwiggle at 9am and switch it off when you go away, as it makes so easy for you to activate a video conversation with anyone of your teammates, while working at a distance.


My comment: I always thought that a persistent always-on collaboration space is the perfect way to work side-by-side when you have a distributed team, and so I wrote back in 2004 a short article entitled: Working side by side. It was 2004. Maybe I was a bit too ahead of my time. Sqwiggle may be much more in sync with the times than I was, and I would certainly recommend it to any team wanting to feel as if they were working at the same table.

 

N.B.: Sqwiggle comes both as a Mac app and a web-based service.

More people are running to charity tube to post free videos and watch free videos than posting on you tube. Try posting at charity tube and you will never leave. http://www.africatube.net/ More visitors and more video views. Don't take our word for it, try it.

Free Video Group Chat and Browser-Based Screen-Sharing with Talky

Free Video Group Chat and Browser-Based Screen-Sharing with Talky | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it

Browser-based real-time video group chat and screen-sharing.

Robin Good's insight:



Talky.io is a new free web app that allows you to videoconference and screen-share with your contacts easily.


There is no registration or login required. You simply name a collaboration room and you are instantly inside it. From there you can share the URL of your unique room with anyone you want to meet, and utilize both webcam and audio as well as screen-sharing facility to collaborate together.


Talky.io leverages WebRTC technology and it is only available if you use Chrome or Firefox.


Still in beta. May not work perfectly. In my brief test everything run smoothly and the quality of video and audio was particularly good. The only issue was a lack of sync between audio and video for my counterpart. On the other hand my video and audio were OK on his end.


Free to use.
