FlashMeeting – Simple Web Browser Meeting and Replay Tool

FlashMeeting – Simple Web Browser Meeting and Replay Tool
http://flashmeeting.open.ac.uk/

FlashMeeting is an application based on the Adobe Flash ‘plug in’ and Flash Media Server. Running in a standard web browser window, it allows a dispersed group of people to meet from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Typically a meeting is pre-booked by a registered user and a url, containing a unique password for the meeting, is returned by the FlashMeeting server. The ‘booker’ passes this on to the people they wish to participate, who simply click on the link to enter into the meeting at the arranged time. During the meeting one person speaks (i.e. broadcasts) at a time. Other people can simultaneously contribute using text chat, the whiteboard, or emoticons etc. while waiting for their turn to speak. This way the meeting is ordered, controlled and easy to follow. A replay of the meeting is instantly available, to those with the ‘unique’ replay url. FlashMeeting users belong to one of three account types; Guest, Sign In and Booker. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
