Real-Time Collaborative Screen Sharing In Any App with ScreenHero (Mac)

 

 


Via Robin Good
Lauren Kelly's insight:

We read Robin Good last week and he's a trustworthy source--he scooped this piece on collaborative screen sharing which seems very pertinent to the topic of online collaboration.  Screen sharing is also something we haven't talked about a lot and that I would like to explore more.

ScreenHero is a new downloadable Mac app (soon for Windows too) which allows you to easily share any app you have installed on your computer with one or more people, who can work on it simultaneously with you.


Key basic features:


  1. Full simultaneous control
  2. One-to-one sharing
  3. Fast, HD quality
  4. Share an application or the entire screen



Advanced features (for paid plans)

  1. Screen-sharing one-to-many
  2. Voice-chat
  3. Encryption
  4. Better Customer Support



From the official site: "Screenhero lets you screen share any application with anyone, no matter where they are. It's super simple and blazing fast.


You each get your own mouse pointer, and you're both always in control.


It's designed for collaboration, not just broadcasting your screen. It's like Google Docs for any application on your computer. "



A Windows version is coming soon and you can sign up to be notified when it will be available.


Free version available.


Download ScreenHero (Mac): http://dl.screenhero.com/update/screenhero/Screenhero.dmg (23.4 MB)

Via Robin Good
Lauren Kelly's insight:

This is another interesting platform that allows for visual collaboration.  These sorts of posts make me want to narrow down my topic to just online visual collaboration and information sharing!

Watch the tutorial! This Collaborative Visual Board seems to be a great tool for virtual and face-to-face classrooms and meetings. Really worth trying.

Lawrence Lessig on Sortition and Citizen Participation

Lawrence Lessig on Sortition and Citizen Participation | online_collaboration | Scoop.it

When designing citizen engagement mechanisms I always consider sortition (or randomization) as a mechanism of participant selection. Nevertheless, and particularly in the #opengov space, my experience is that this idea does not resonate a lot: it sounds less sexy than crowdsourcing and more complicated than over-simplistic mechanisms of “civil society engagement”.

Lauren Kelly's insight:

Lessig is a great writer and thinker about new online heterarchy and participatory/collaborative culture.  This source seems to be an insightful piece on how people can become engaged online and in public spaces.
