We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Document loading and annotation."
"The solution allows me to connect and collaborate with my classes."
"The key advantage of GoToMeeting is the ability to use it without installing anything."
"Even for somebody who does not have a lot of experience, they can easily use it."
"GoToMeeting is very handy. It's good software. I would definitely recommend it."
"The most valuable feature is the dial-in capability."
"The most important feature for me was the iPhone app."
"Screenshare is the most valuable feature as well as the number of meeting participants possible in a meeting. It also has good quality."
"I like GoToMeeting because it is lighter than other solutions, such as Webex."
"The system can overload when too many try logging in."
"If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."
"The enrolment for a non-IT user should be easier. It should be simplified for non-IT users."
"It is not so stable."
"The newer user interface takes a bit longer to get used to."
"In addition to the features it already has, I think GoToMeeting should also have additional features that are not present at the moment."
"Manageability needs to be improved."
"GoToMeeting is too slow, which is why we no longer use it."
"The sound quality is good but the video quality needs improvement."
"The interface is a little outdated and could be better."
"It is a little expensive although now, with the competition from Zoom and other products, they have lowered their prices and it is better."
"GoToMeeting is a little bit expensive compared to other products."
