Web Conferencing is an online service to hold live meetings, conferencing, presentations, and training sessions via the internet. You can connect to the conference either by telephone or using your computer's speakers and microphone through a VoIP connection.
Zoom allows you to give someone permission to schedule Zoom meetings on your behalf.
To learn how to give someone schedule permission and to use this feature, please visit the Zoom Support Center.
This feature allows anyone participating in an online Zoom meeting to share their desktop.
Check out the Feature Spotlight for more information.
When one screenshares, there is an option to annotate what is being seen on the screen within the meeting. In this way, someone could mark-up or highlight a document, PowerPoint, or image in a live meeting without damaging the original.
There is also an iPad Whiteboarding feature available as well for live online instruction.
