Chapter 11 – Remote Presentations

Desktop sharing software, otherwise known as web conferencing, allows you to share your desktop with a remote computer. That means they will see your desktop in a window on their own desktop. Web conferencing packages also include text chat, virtual whiteboards, and other collaboration features. Desktop sharing programs can be used to run presentations or view other peoples’ presentations. Most desktop sharing programs can be run just by clicking a link in your web browser.

You can share with a computer in the conference room that projects your slides. Desktop sharing can be used to share Microsoft PowerPoint, Open Office, Apple Keynote, and any other software you are running. Web conferencing is also an effective collaboration tool for graphical tasks like designing user interfaces or presentation slides.
