More and more companies are starting to use web conferencing technology as a way to conduct business meetings with clients, or other branches of their company. They’ve also been using web conferencing to conduct seminars, both for employees as in in educational sessions, and for customers too.
I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the online colleges started using web conferencing to begin teaching some of their classes. Wouldn’t that be a great idea. Take a course from home – but attend class on the web?
My husband was watching a documentary the other day about future technology. I believe the documentary was created in the late 80’s or very early 90’s. One of the “Future” technologies that they discussed was the ability for everyone to be able to partake in virtual conversations.
So instead of just talking on the phone you could sit yourself down in front of a screen, perhaps select a background for yourself and call up your family, friends or business associates and talk to them face to face in real time. Very much like what video conferencing is today – but with a little bit of extra flare added in.
I think we’re almost there.
