All products allow desktop and application sharing, one-click recording, drawing tools, voice conferencing abilities, and more.

WebEx is an excellent service that provides you with unlimited online meetings. With this, you receive high-quality videos, phone conferencing, and mobile access (including the iPad), so that you are able to host and attend meetings while you are on the go. You even gain the ability to have up to 25 people in a meeting and see up to six webcams on screen at the same time. Their online collaboration tools, such as note taking, white boarding, and annotations make it great for working with groups.

MeetingBurner

MeetingBurner is not just a great place to hold online meetings (directly in the browser with no downloads required), it’s also good for hosting webinars and sharing your screen. It includes Skype integration, conference lines, and one-click recording and sharing. You will also receive analytics for your meetings so that you are able to see how your guests interact with your content. Due to its fast load times and easy-to-use interface, it’s one of the most popular services for online meetings. Best of all, the service is free.

Meetin.gas

You will be able to have threaded discussions, which means it’s a lot like having your own private social networking platform with a few additional benefits.

Web Conferencing for Education

July 28th, 2015 by ali No comments »

Web conferencing is a fantastic tool that businesses around the world use on an everyday basis. With that said, there are other uses for this technology within the education sector. In fact, it is possible to teach and store an entire semester’s worth of classes on a web conferencing platform. This holds the potential for a revolution in the conduction of online classes.

The Many Benefits of Web Conferencing for Online Education

Such a revolution will be able to take place because web conferencing software has made significant progress recently. The ability to share documents means that presentations are no longer reliant on screen sharing. This is excellent for classes because it means professors no longer need to worry about what is on their desktop or in their folders while teaching a class.

Additionally, it eliminates the time it would normally take to locate the documents. Web conferencing also provides an interactive environment that is ideal for use as a classroom. The chat system and raise hand feature make it easy for students to ask any questions they may have during the presentation, thus helping to eliminate any potential for confusion. Furthermore, the ability to pass presenter control allows teachers to easily pass control to their assistants during the presentation.

Perhaps the biggest feature that makes web conferencing software perfect for the classroom is the ability to record your meetings and post them online. This allows you to archive your classes for anyone who may have missed them live. Students can also take advantage of this opportunity to review material which they may feel is not clear or which they want to brush up on. As a result, students can take advantage of the opportunity to pace lessons according to their own learning style. This can help to greatly increase retention of the material presented, while increasing the success rate of students.

In Personal Communication with Web Conferencing for Education

Another great feature of web conferencing for the education sector is showing your webcam via desktop video conferencing. Students can actually see the teacher through the webcam. This can make it possible for the student to pick up on subtle nuances in a presentation that would not be possible through audio only, including gestures and facial expressions that can help to bring the material in a presentation to life.

This is also perfect for online classes where everyone often has different schedules. While they will not be able to ask live questions, students will be able to see all of the questions that other students asked live. This is much different than when watching a video of the lecture and not being able to see the thoughts of others.

I Want to Remotely Access My Home Computer – R-HUB Remote Support Servers

July 21st, 2015 by ali No comments »

Your home computer is the perfect machine. It is customized to your precise needs, runs all your must-have apps, and holds every important file you might ever need to access. There is a catch; however: It’s not exactly practical to lug a computer with you everywhere you need to go. This can make it somewhat inconvenient when you are at work and need to access a file from home or when you are traveling and need certain files from your home computer. That’s where remote access comes in handy.

Below are three easy ways to control your home computer from anywhere—your laptop, your phone, or even a friend’s computer, as though you were sitting directly in front of it. This is a great benefit for you as well as for your friends and family members.

The Simplest Option: Use R-HUB Remote Support Servers

By far, the easiest way to access another computer is to use the awesome, cross-platform R-HUB. Here’s how it works.

  • Begin by downloading and installing R-HUB’s TurboMeeting on both your home computer and remote computer. 
  • Next, start Remote Access Meeting 
  • Now, log into your account on your home computer. Leave R-HUB TurboMeeting running in the background when you leave the house. 
  • Run R-HUB TurboMeeting on your remote machine and log into your account. You should immediately see your remote session meeting ID in the list. Click on it to start a remote session with that machine. 

That’s all there is to it. It really is that simple. With this tool, you can quickly and easily share files between machines. Never again do you have to worry about being in one location and needing to access a file from your home computer or another machine.

You can also view multiple monitors and configure advanced settings to make run as smoothly as possible. Even if you are trying to connect two Windows computers or two Macs, I would still recommend using R-HUB. Please note that R-HUB also has an iOS app, if you want to connect from your phone, as well as a web client if you’re on a friend’s computer and don’t want to install any additional software on their machine. Furthermore, it has support for wake-on LAN, which means you can put your home computer to sleep and wake it up when you want to use it, all without being in front of it. That’s pretty great. You can gain access to all of your files at any time without worrying about any restrictions. This allows you to be far more productive while saving a tremendous amount of time, something that everyone wants to be able to do in today’s fast-paced modern world.

Are you interested in accessing your home computer from anywhere at any time? If so, we invite you to try a 30-day trial demo at http://www.rhubcom.com. Additionally, you may also contact us at 1-866-758-0984 or email us at sales@rhubcom.com.

Inclement Weather? Have a Web Meeting!

July 20th, 2015 by ali No comments »

build_trust

At the moment, as I write this, I’m looking out of our office window and it’s pouring rain. When I looked at the forecast for the week, it seems as if there is no end in sight for the rain. Not only does this weather greatly increase travel times, but it also increases the risk of getting into an accident. So, rather than put any of our clients at risk, we will do most of our meetings as web meetings.

This way, no one needs to travel away from his or her office in this weather. Not only is it much safer than driving in the rain, but it also saves money for companies that reimburse for gas. Being that our office is located in the suburbs of San Jose, such cost savings and added safety are felt even more during the winter when we traditionally are bombarded by snow. As a result, we are able to continue hosting meetings with clients without worrying that the weather will impact our productivity. This makes it much easier for us to continue business as usual while also saving money and time. It’s a feature that our clients and our staff have come to greatly appreciate.

Web Conferencing Offers a Myriad of Advantages

Using web conferencing also provides you with many advantages during your presentation. For example, did you know that you are actually able to pre-load the documents that you plan to use during your presentation? Doing this enables you to switch between documents fluidly without your participants noticing and without you needing to navigate through all of the folders on your computer to find the files. This results in much more professional presentations and smoother presentations.

Global Communication Made Easier

That is not the only advantage to hosting your meeting online. Having your meeting online also gives you the ability to connect more easily with participants across the globe without long distance phone charges or the need to book expensive flights. This has proven to be particularly important as the business world of today has grown increasingly global. Now, you can conduct business with anyone from any location without worrying about traveling around the world to do so.

The built-in HD webcam support will also allow your international participants to feel as though they are right in the room with you. This makes interpersonal communication much easier and can help to eliminate any potential for miscommunication from occurring because participants are not able to see everyone’s facial expressions. Everyone is able to communicate on the same level and feel as though they are truly participating in the meeting. This helps to increase buy-in and improve overall communication.

And, if you should have any questions about how this or any of our products can help your business, please call 1-866-758-0984 or email us at sales@rhubcom.com. We would be happy to help.

Managing your own computer from afar or even troubleshooting a family member’s PC without being in front of it is much easier when you have a good remote desktop utility on which to rely. With so many different options available; however, you may find yourself wondering which remote desktop utility is best and will meet your specific needs. Below we take a look at the top remote desktop and management tools to assist you in determining which option will help to make your remote support needs a little easier.

R-HUBTM (which stands for Real-Time Collaboration HUB and is pronounced as R HUB) is a premier provider of web conferencing, remote support, audio conferencing, and desktop video conferencing servers that meet the needs of service providers as well as any organization that needs a reliable support tool.

Unlike competing solutions based on named licenses, every employee can use the R-HUB productivity tools without any extra costs thanks to the R-HUB floating license model. R-HUB’s patented breakthrough “Universal Attendance” technology enables users of any platform to join meetings by using an Internet browser and requiring no download of any additional software. Connect, collaborate, and engage others as often as needed, with ultimate on premise security, simplicity, speed, integration, and branding. As a result, organizations and service providers are able to work more efficiently while saving both time and money.

LogMeIn

LogMeIn is a remote PC access company that allows you to access your work computer or even a distant computer from your own home using your home desktop or laptop. This comes in handy if you forget files at your office and don’t like driving all the way back to the office in order to retrieve them. It could also be used when traveling out of town or even out of the country and you do not have vital files with you. LogMeIn grants you complete control over your work computer or a distant computer from the comfort of your own home by simply installing their software and then getting back to work.

TeamViewer

TeamViewer is the remote support tool of choice for many geeks. It can be used in several different ways. You can direct your partner to download the TeamViewer QuickSupport application, which you can run without needing administrator access or any system configuration. It will give them a session ID and password that they can give to you, thus allowing you to easily remotely connect from your TeamViewer program.

Ammyy Admin

Ammyy Admin is a completely portable remote access program that’s extremely simple to set up. It works by connecting one computer to another via an ID supplied by the program.

AeroAdmin

AeroAdmin is probably the easiest program to use for free remote access. There are hardly any settings, and everything is quick and to the point, which is perfect for spontaneous support.
