Ease of use is its best feature. From the host point of view, it is easy to access all of its features. Setting up a meeting is quick, sending out invites is easy, connecting to the meeting and starting a meeting couldn’t be easier.
From the end user point of view, this system is great. It doesn’t need to be installed on the user’s PC by an administrator. We just click the meeting link, the meeting launches in a temporary instance, and we are good to go.
There is an app for Android and iOS, but those too are easy to install. It uses whatever camera, microphone, and speakers you’ve got setup on your device. We use this software as part of our Distance Learning programs.
And we’ve used it with schools, museums, and hospitals. Think kids that are sick and cannot leave the hospital. Or kids from a landlocked state, who haven’t seen the ocean.
We take them on virtual tours of our Aquarium, and show them the bay and the shipping channel, and it’s all LIVE VIDEO and two way communication so we can answer questions and show the kids what they want to see.
This software is so easy to use, not just for our staff, but also for educators and hospital staff. It’s extremely easy for them to click a link and know the software will work without their having to call their IT staff to install software and test it over and over again.
We have not had any problems whatsoever with connecting to Zoom or during our meetings that weren’t related to our internet or end user’s internet connection.
I’m hard pressed to pinpoint what I like least about this software. Seriously, it’s easy to use, it has a lot of features, and everyone likes it. I would say maybe the cost is probably the worst thing about it. But honestly, it is not even that expensive.
Biggest benefit is helping us to serve out our mission of education and conservation by letting us reach students who cannot come to us.
