GoToMeeting is a feature of Blackboard that makes online education more like a physical classroom by using technology to simulate the face-to-face experience
GoToMeeting is used to assist in online courses and can make any class more personable and interactive. It is intended to create a nurturing educational environment that provides students with free access to lectures and class materials even if they are absent.
GoToMeeting provides a number of services to accomplish this goal:
- Audio and video communication (microphone and webcam)
- Application sharing
- Control swapping (instructor to student)
- Content display
- WMV file format
- Lecture recording
The wide variety of services offered by GoToMeeting can be useful in any course. Both physical and online classrooms could benefit from the following improvements:
- Better communication between students and instructors
- More relatable and interactive online classrooms
- Wider varieties of usable media
- More convenient make-up sessions
- Easier access to lectures and course materials
Need an internet connection, speakers or head set and microphone, and if you want video, a web camera. The more technology you use the more robust your internet speed needs to be.
GoToMeeting is accessible to all students, faculty, and staff.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week except for scheduled maintenance periods.
