One of my favorite techie colleagues is Camille Carboneau Roberts, who specializes in in resumes (and especially federal resumes). Camille always has great insight into techno-geek stuff. She wrote in about her favorite screen sharing software/systems, and gave me permission to repost here.
I’ve been using GoToMeeting, GoToPC, and GoToWebinar since they first came out. I’d have to say for at least 12-13 years. So long ago, that the price I pay per year is not even half of what they charge now because I set it up to renew annually. I do get my money’s worth because I use it for training-software, social media, and on occasion 1:1 with clients on their projects.
However, now, I use join.me for the quick individual sessions. Clients don’t always want to download the software even though it only takes about 2 minutes and join.me is just really simple to use. I also use it to “remote” in and do computer/file/software fixes.
There are hundreds of others that work well including:
and a small drum roll: Google+
There has been Remote Assistance built into the last few versions of Windows, but not a lot of people know about it… and it is a bit buggy if you aren’t tech savvy.
If you are looking for simple, you can’t beat join.me.
Thanks for the list Camille!
