* [Show Transcript] WEB CONFERENCING

Today, you do not have to travel from one place to another to attend
conferences and seminars. Instead, you can use Web conferencing so that all
the participants can communicate with each other over the Internet.

One of the features of Web conferencing is that it allows you to hold a
virtual conference where you can see and hear others in real time. You can
also use tools such as virtual whiteboards and slide presentations during
the conference.

Another feature of Web conferencing is screen sharing, where the
participants can see what is on the presenter's desktop.

Web conferencing also allows voice communication between the participants
so that they can share their views and discuss their opinions. Voice
communication could be Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or voice
communication by using telephone conferencing.

Web conferencing also allows you to use text chatting if voice
communication is not possible. GLOSSARY
