Join Me….my “choice” of an extra tool to post

Image

A friend shared this great web-based tool with me that she uses when teaching.  “Join.me” is a web-based service that allows you to share your screen with anyone.  You simply start it, share a link with anyone/everyone and they join you seeing your broadcasted screen.  It has audio capabilities and allows you to share your screen, files, demonstrations, etc.  There is a free version that is fairly basic and a “pro” version that is very sophisticated. The “pro” version costs $149.00 a year.

I believe this would be great for doing simple sharing of your screen to teach a lesson or demonstrate something quickly and without launching the LMS (assuming you have a collaboration tool like Bb Collaborate).  I would like to try this tool for class purposes to see how I can assist students with technology at a distance. I believe there is great promise there.
