Dimdim. Another Web Conferencing Tool

Take an e-Learning Break

I am checking out DimDim , another web-conferencing tool. Setting up a meeting in Dimdim is very easy. You can kick off a meeting immediately or schedule it for later (including recurring meetings). The product lets you conduct online slide shows using PowerPoints and PDFs. You can annotate as you go and let users mark up, too. You can also work on a shared, multipage whiteboard. Or you can share your screen, which is useful for demos.

Last Week's Kineo Product Knowledge E-Learning Webinar:

Learning Visions

My weak connection probably contributed to my choppy audio delivery, but all in all things went smooth with DimDim. On Thursday Kineo's Stephen Walsh and I presented a webinar on Product Knowledge e-Learning. After having participated in and live-blogged many a webinar, this was the first I've actually helped present. It was great fun. I was sitting outside at a picnic table overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Maine, while gratefully connected to a neighboring house's wifi.

The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?

Learning Visions

Web conferencing services like DimDim now offer the equivalent of WebEx. Richard Nantel of Brandon Hall recently posted about average LMS prices. A ‘low-cost’ LMS starts at an average of $58K. That’s the low price. Which is still a whole LOT of money. And “in times like these…” Why pay for a pricey LMS when you can Moodle or Drupal or Sakai ? Why do companies continue to pay huge dollars for products that are now being offered for free?

10 Social Media Tools For Learning

The eLearning Coach

Dimdim. The forward thinking folks at Dimdim created an application that is completely in the cloud. Dimdim has an open source version so developers can integrate it with other software. Do you have a training or information need that could benefit from a social media strategy?

Open Source Web Conferencing Solutions – FREE

eLearning 24-7

DimDim - up to 5 participants, other options available but are fee based. I have a real issue with vendors who charge extra – via a license with their “partner&# or otherwise for a web conferencing – and thus ability to offer webinars, in their solution. It should be free – 100%. No license fee, even though it is integrated into your solution, no extra cost – since it is integrated with your solution.

Web Conferencing Services

Tony Karrer

I found a Google doc via delicious that I have a feeling wasn't intended to be public, but it has such a wonderful comparison of the various web conferencing tools that I felt compelled to copy it here and as a new Google Doc in case the document goes away. I also noticed that Wikipedia has a page - Comparison of web conferencing software - but it doesn't have pricing and a few other columns.

Collaboration Tools

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. You can find a long list of tools broken into authoring tools, games/simulations, quiz/test tools, social media, delivery platforms, tracking and whether they support mobile.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Learning Visions

Web conferencing services like DimDim now offer the equivalent of WebEx. The observation that Moodle or DimDim are not supported by any company per-se isn't quite right, most of these products have a commercial entity behind them, for example Moodle.org is controlled by Moodle.com and they sell support as well as control the source code. DimDim has about eight other open source projects embedded into it for example.

DimDim - Still a little rough around the edges, but a great, free tool. My primary interest here are the methods and tools that allow us to work better as part of remote work teams.

The big question: What are your predictions for learning in 2008

Clive on Learning

Synchronous e-learning will continue to grow and open source variants such as dimdim will help bring down the cost.

E-learning on a shoestring

Clive on Learning

Get a license to Webex, Elluminate or something similar (perhaps even a free web conferencing tool like DimDim) to provide the capability to run live online sessions. E-learning in the workplace used to be the preserve of the large corporate or public body. Only they were able to afford the necessarily substantial investments in learning platforms and content development and had the large audiences against which these investments could be amortised.

So what is software worth?

Clive on Learning

DimDim , open source web conferencing. What is the connection between computer software and women's clothing? No, idea? Let me tell you. With the costs of manufacture tumbling as retailers source from the Far East, along with a general easing of import restrictions, the costs of clothing in the high street have fallen to almost unbelievable levels. This is most evident in women's clothing, where at shops like Zara, Mango, H&M and Top Shop, clothing is practically given away.
