Cool Tools Episode 30 Podcast: Dimdim
The mission of Dimdim is “to become the leading provider of open source web meeting software.” With this cool tool you can meet with others online to show pdfs and slide presentations, use chat and audio to discuss, share your desktop, broadcast on a web cam, and collaborate on a whiteboard. It is lightweight with no download required for attendees. It is cross platform with Mac, Windows, and Linux and is quite easy to set up and use for both presenter and participants. How can libraries and other organizations make use of this tool? I offer some ideas in this podcast. For those of you out there who are looking to replace spending gas money and travel time with the convenience of meeting from your home or office, give Dimdim a try, and … meet freely.
