Web conferencing sites let their users hold screen or video coneferences without the hassle of installing complicated software. The basic requirements include a computer with a fast internet connection, a microphone, and a webcam (for video capability). This is an ideal solution for quick or less formal meetings between a student and an instructor in distance education. Alternatively, you may consider video chatting over an instant messaging application, for a more formal event, see the video conferencing service provided by the Campus Media Center.
