Web Conferencing

Having used various web conferencing systems with Moodle of the last few years, it has been interesting to review some of the Moodle 2.0 integrations with the various platforms.

Each different web conferencing system has its own feature set and pricing model which influences the type and level of integration that a Moodle 2 plugin can achieve. As I produce the reviews for the different modules I will be summarising and linking them here for easier access.

These reviews assess the plugin, not the web conferencing software itself. If you would like to get a specific one reviewed, and can get me access to a demo server to test, please let me know!

**Standard Reminder**

These reviews check out the plugin for usability not for security. If you are considering installing any module on your site you should also check that is secure and does not impact the server performance.

    Good post. Apart from Moodle integration, has any one tried using tools such as gomeetnow, gotomeeting, RHUB appliances in order to conduct web conferences, webinars, online meetings, online presentations etc.?
