I take it Flashmeeting is free.

How many users can be online in it at any one time? Is this dependent on memory on the server or something?

many thanks
Anita

Hi Anita,

Flashmeeting is free to use. You need to set up an account by contacting either Jeff Howson or John Warwick

jeffrhowson@gmail.com

john.warwick@stlukes.herts.sch.uk

A maximum of 25 users can take part in any one Flashmeeting. All they need is the latest version of Macromedia Flash installed and a microphone or webcam. The account holder then books a meeting for a specific time and date and sends potential participants the URL they will need to join the meeting. It is as simple as that.

Hope that helps

Yes, I AM in love with FM! So easily done, nicht?! I have set up a couple of trial FMs with staff at school and, according to our new BTs, the MFL department (in particular!) was running around very excitedly and with wild abandon! See what technology can do? I have also used FM with a group of totally non-techy, non-teaching peeps and they LOVE it! I have just started a blogaffair with a Spanish teacher in the States with a view (eventually!) to having our pupils 'flash' each other - in the best sense of the word! MisS :)

Well, it is high time that we use this technology in our children's education. Although the effort is there, some schools are not utilizing this because of lack of proper knowledge of this fairly new technology. Educating our educators first would be the best approach by starting with the definition of video conferencing, the tools, how to use it, etc.

Have a look at this link to more information about Flashmeeting:

This should help.

Thanks for your comment.

Joe
