C2: A Collaborative Evaluation of Web Conferencing Tools

A session at IWMW 2012 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Tuesday 19th June, 2012

4:00pm to 5:30pm

Online conferencing tools are starting to see widespread adoption in higher education as institutions respond to pressures to broaden the green agenda and enhance the quality of distance education courses. Of the myriad solutions on offer which do we chose and why?

This session will report on the current pilot of web conferencing tools at the University of Bath and will explore some of the usage scenarios, obstacles and enablers for successful adoption. Much of the session will involve a collaborative evaluation of some of the tools available and sharing of good practice around the embedding of web conferencing within institutions.

Note: We will shortly provide information on apps which are available on iPhone and Android mobile phones / tablets and laptops which can be used at the session (although you do not need to bring a mobile device if you wish to attend this workshop).
