Vyew.com is one of the sites mentioned during a faculty training workshop. The faculty member chose Vyew because it seemed to match what his activities during an online session the best. He shared his experience with the faculty body. Students could see and hear him as well as view the PowerPoint slides. They responded to his questions using the text chat function.
I am going to use Vyew for my online book club discussions for the library and online course discussion for the business technologies department. Vyew is free for up to ten participants. It does not require a software download, nor do participants even need to register.
