Free Guide: Virtual Classrooms
It's been a while since we last took a look at the use of virtual classrooms, still a fairly new concept way back in February 2009. There have been quite a few changes since we last took a look at the options for virtual classrooms and webinars, and with so many newcomers, updates and takeovers since we last did a review, there is plenty to talk about.
In this new paper we look at open source and commercial virtual classroom options and present you with all you need to know about why you should be considering virtual classrooms, how to make the most of them, and which ones are the top ones to consider in our view.
The virtual classroom market has changed hugely in 2 years, with the product lines of the big players completely revamped and intensive price competition among commercial vendors. One of our old 'ones to watch' GoToMeeting has now become an industry leader, and Dimdim has been acquired by Salesforce.com and discontinued (though left in as it's been revived by a new team), plus there's also some new blood that's definitley worth keeping an eye on, in particular a major new open source player in BigBlueButton.
