Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | FreeSources for Learners & Learning Designers | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.

 

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

 

Check it out here: http://pinterest.com/robingood/top-15-free-video-conferencing-tools-2012/

 

P.S.: Feel free to suggest tools you know that should belong in this collection.

5 Best Screencast Software For Creating YouTube Videos

5 Best Screencast Software For Creating YouTube Videos | FreeSources for Learners & Learning Designers | Scoop.it

Screencast applications help users create video tutorials and training courses by capturing desktop content. Such tools often provide numerous handy options for adding voice and music to recorded videos, as well as to annotate video frames to provide useful information to the viewer. I myself make use of such applications to provide my readers with video guides which are often added to some of the posts at WML Cloud. These screencasts are also uploaded to the official WML Cloud YouTube Channel, as well as to our channels at Vimeo and DailyMotion. If you are looking for a good free tool to create screencasts for educational, business or personal use, then here are a few suggestions for you.
