Just like a normal whiteboard you can write notes and draw diagrams & illustrations. But it is more powerful allowing you to also insert images, video, links to documents and web pages. Great for discussing visual concepts and designs.
Audio and Video Conferencing
Use a standard microphone and webcam to talk face-to-face. Up to four video channels with an unlimited number in your audience who may listen in to important discussions. Gives online meetings that personal touch.
All meeting participants may use text chat to communicate comments or document key points throughout a discussion. Now everyone can join in, even over slow modem connections.
File Library and Document Management
Upload documents, images and other media files to a central file library that can be accessed throughout a meeting as well as afterwards for reference or further editing and completion. Link directly from the whiteboard to documents for editing using your word process or other desktop software. Check in and check out documents to ensure that changes are not overwritten accidentally. Give access to the master version even when you are offline, as documents remain accessible to others who you have given permission to open the fie library.
Use the built-in screen capture feature to take screen shots of web pages or anything else on your computer that you wish to show others. Mark up screenshots using the whiteboard drawing tools.
Use the screen sharing module to show others what you are doing on your Windows PC. Works through most firewalls without additional configuration. You can even show multiple viewers your screen at once, and they can be using Windows, Mac or Linux computers.
When you need to give others control of your mouse and keyboard, then use the application sharing module.
Power Point to SWF Conversion
Collaboroom also has a module that enables you to convert Power Point presentations to SWF format so you can share these too on the whiteboard, just like using a data projector but online!
Screen Recording and Replay
When you need to have a record of all that happened during an important meeting or presentation, you can capture and share it in AVI, SWF or FLV format. Ideal for student review of tutorials or as visual minutes of business discussions.
