More businesses are taking advantage of web conferencing to interact with clients and employees. They may not realize the learning benefits of this tool.

Lectures have been a staple for teaching people for many years. A person would stand in front of a group of people and tell them the things they needed to know.

This type of education has been used in classrooms full of students and in businesses that need to teach large groups of employee’s things they need to know. It is considered to be an effective teaching tool. While it may be an easy way to teach large groups of people, it is not always an effective learning tool.

People who listen to a lecture may not pay as much attention as they need to in order to understand what is being taught. They may not have the opportunity to ask any questions they have. They may lose interest in what a person is saying because of the tone of the speaker’s voice. There are many people who are at a lecture that do not get the education they should for a variety of reasons.

A good business or school will look for tools that allow everyone involved to learn as much as possible. One of the tools that is available is web conferencing. When used properly, it can be a very effective way for large groups of people to learn what they need to know.

    I think this is a great article because it shows how students can utilize this technology to experience learning in a new way. I know this definitely would have helped me when I was with school. The tools like file sharing and screen sharing would have made group projects much easier. I use iMeet (www.pgi.com/imeet) now and its very easy to use so students who are unfamiliar with the software shouldn’t have any problems using it.
