Abstract: This paper is a summary of research and experiences using Web conferencing tools to support students in under graduate and graduate programs in learning through web-based courses. The presenters will share best practices associated with teaching while using web conferencing software. The more popular Web Conferencing software will be compared. Two examples of how faculty members use programs such as WebEX (a paid service) and Any Meeting (an open resource) will be demonstrated. Additional free or open source web conferencing systems will be shared within this session.
