Top 3 Tools for Online Meetings

Coronavirus at work meetings
Since the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that people do not gather in large groups; instead, they suggest that people should practice social distancing. Social distancing means keeping your distance when conversing with others. 

Rather than meeting in person, people could utilize online meeting applications to remain safe and still have face-to-face conversations. Whether you are casually meeting with a friend or are attending a work meeting, virtual video chatting is a safe alternative.

What is Video Conferencing Software?

Video Conference Software is designed for two or more people to communicate virtually using audio, video, and chat options. These applications enable groups of individuals to collaborate using file-sharing and screen-sharing options.
