GoToMeeting

Service Description

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

Requirements/Limitations

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.
