Web conferencing can be a powerful tool for students both in blended classroom and the online learning environment. Both students and faculty can benefit from real-time interactions outside of the classroom as a way to include interactive media, hold review sessions, and support learning communities. Eastern Washington University offers a zoom for our web-based conferencing that is accessible on MacOS, Window, iOS and Android mobile devices. Web conferencing systems that allow groups to meet, present, and collaborate.
Participants in a web conferencing session can have discussions using voice or text chat, write, draw, and paste images on a shared whiteboard. These web conferences can view or share documents or software running on any participant’s computer, use breakout rooms to work in smaller groups and conduct polls and give quizzes. Web Conferences can record sessions for later viewing privately within a Canvas course or publicly.
