Conferencing on a shoestring

posted on
March 3rd, 2010

This afternoon, I keynoted the 3rd Global Learning Summit in Singapore. From my studio in Berkeley.

I’m doing more remote presentations these days. It reduces my carbon footprint. It saves time and money. It’s a win-win. I’m frugal.

We used Skype. Free. My face and/or my presentation filled the big screen in the ballroom. I could speak back and forth with participants and other presenters. I’ve delivered presentations like this in Europe as well. Skype’s sound quality is very, very good.

Cost is no longer an excuse for not getting on board with collaboration.

The slides for my presentation, Working Smarter with Collaborative Intelligence, are here.
