Yugma and collaboration a perfect fit?

This is something that you might want to try. Until the end of the month you can have a free account. Yugma like Eluminate allows you collaborate in many different ways. I plan to use it to connect 2 smartboards. Chrystal and I are doing a math problem solving series with our students. Using this technology the students will be able to interact with each other using their smartboard or activeboard. I am able to give control of the mouse to the other school and have them write on our screen and visa versa.

As we give a problem and share our desktops the two rooms will in REAL TIME share ideas and solutions.

We will be storing all of our results and problems at alatoba07.

Thanks to Ann and Dennis for helping me test out Yugma and for Kristin for giving up some time on the weekend to teach me a few new tricks.

I have that fire back in my belly. Bring it on. I am ready for ..... collaboration.

This has been very useful to my company and trainees. It's a great tool to do presentations and conduct online, interactive meetings. We've been using Yugma for almost a year now. We love that they're very customer focused - responding to what we need. They're ever evolving and getting better for us by the day :)

Vyew is another online collaboration platform that you may want to try. With Vyew you can collaborate in real time and its workspaces are also always on so that participants can access them any time to annotate or create content. Vyew is also completely browser-based and requires no software installation.
