Draw.Chat - Virtual Classroom/Real-time collaboration

Draw.Chat - Virtual Classroom/Real-time collaboration | technologies | Scoop.it
Draw.Chat is a free, anonymous, online drawing board. You can create your chat room with one click - without any registration. Every whiteboard has a unique, randomly generated URL which you can send to other people to start draw online.
John Dalziel's insight:
Looking for ways to hold remote, on-line...
  - tutoring? and/or
  - meetings to plan presentations? and/or
  - meetings to edit project outlines etc.? 
Today's post may provide a solution... 
Draw Chat is a "free" service that allows anyone to create a video chat over a whiteboard, PDF, image, or map. 
To use Draw Chat just...
  - visit the site and
  - click "Start New Whiteboard." Once the whiteboard launches users will have the option to enable access to their webcam and microphone. 
  - Send the link, assigned to the whiteboard, to have others join the whiteboard video conference. 
Draw Chat allows users to...
  - draw or type on a shared whiteboard.
  - upload a PDF or an image to annotate on the whiteboard. 
A fourth option for drawing on Draw Chat is to import the URL for a Google Map and draw on that map. 
NOTE: Users are randomly assigned a username in the video and text chat which is an odd thing and can be a source of confusion unless you're using the video conferencing aspect of Draw Chat. 
It's FREE so give it a go!

Teach or Meet Live Now
John Dalziel's insight:
Many Educators are looking for ways to host an on-line learning environment, an on-line tutoring session and/or to 'connect and collaborate' with colleagues, the list goes on. 
At times all of us could use a free and easy way to create on-line rooms. 
Yes you could use Google Hangouts, but, to be fair, more times than not at least one person has trouble signing into the Hangout (Heads-up - the cause is usually found in having multiple Google Accounts open at the same time). 
Other virtual 'conference room platforms' can be expensive. 
A possible solution to both of those problems is WebRoom which provides all the features required for effective live on-line classes and meetings. 
Basically there are three steps...
  - Create a room - just enter your name and email address,
  - Invite Participants - use the invite function, or share the link provided via email, chat or however you like and
  - that's it - Participants join instantly by clicking the link. 
As for the technical requirements...
  - Browsers... a current version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or Edge
  - Mobile Devices...Android OS 4+ and Chrome application or Android 5+ with a built-in Chrome browser. iOS mobile devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod) with iOS 11 or above and only with Safari browser IMPORTANT! 
Heads up - a connection between Safari and Edge browsers, at the time of posting this, can not be established. 
Last of all, take a look at Richard Byrne's video clip "How to create a Virtual Conference Room" at https://www.youtube.com/embed/4BQYrR9Y4fs ;
This is a "I must try it out" tool!

TodaysMeet - Give everyone a voice

TodaysMeet - Give everyone a voice | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

TodaysMeet is intended to be a backchannel chat, but there’s much more users can do with it.
Users can create the same TodaysMeet room (and corresponding URL) for an entire year.
Their learners can bookmark it and can be there in one click.
If users need their learners to visit a site quickly, they just add the link to their TodaysMeet room and their learners can access it quickly. It's worth checking out "20 ways to use TodaysMeet in your Learning Environment (classroom) at http://ditchthattextbook.com/2014/01/30/20-useful-ways-to-use-todaysmeet-in-schools/
