Vyew v.2

Some time ago I sent out a tip about But that was the old version. At PETE&C, Kristin H showed Vyew to her audience and - wow! Has it ever changed!

What is it? A FREE, virtual meeting room, a collaborative meeting room, with some great whiteboard tools and no downloads required. But now, it has voice capabilites, too. Check out this demo video: or just go to to register for a free account. Doing some graduate coursework with a group of students from around the area/ Use it to meet and discuss.

Very nice, indeed. There is a free version and paid versions with more options.

Here's what the site says about itself:
"Vyew provides a virtual space to share information and work together. Get your point across visually. Host live conferences and interact in real-time. Post documents and presentations for review and commenting anytime."

Hi Jim,

Given your interest in web collaboration apps, I invite you to take a look at Yugma, also recently launched ( ). We focus on super-easy and fast real-time web conferencing and desktop sharing for Windows and Mac. You can invite up to 10 other people to your Yugma sessions. Features include free teleconferencing, annotation tools, customizable widget. Coming versoon are VoIP, Linux, whiteboarding and numerous enhancements. I think you'll find it to be very easy to use. And best of all, it free forever. You can check out the demo (see the home page). After you try out Yugma, I'll be interested to hear what you think. You can write to be at info[at]

Best regards,

YUGMA You get web conferencing and desktop sharing for free, AND you can invite up to 10 other people.
