It's great for virtually meeting with people in other cities/countries. It's terrific how they provide so many international numbers for people to use!

Watchitoo StreamingPro

I think Watchitoo is a product that is great for many different use-cases for internal programming, one-on-one teaching, e-learning, live web chats, town halls, etc. The company is also very innovative in that updates are constantly being made to the platform and I've seen feedback immediately reflected in a new feature or button.

Pros

FreeConference.com

  • You can subscribe in a couple clicks and that gives you access, for free, to unlimited conference calls within the US and a selection of other countries (premium accounts give access to all countries - but the free service is already quite amazing).
  • The quality of the calls is a sure benefit. One might expect for it to be poor as I did specifically because of the cost.
  • You can use your numbers without setting up a new conference call every time.
  • You can also schedule a conference and get reminded.

Watchitoo StreamingPro

  • Simplicity of interface and basic features to get non-technical speakers to enable camera/adjust microphone and preview their feed.
  • Complexity of potential programming and special settings that can yield a rather high production quality using external camera, studio switchboards, and any other fancy bells and whistles you want to integrate from other media/communication equipment.
  • Customer service was always on point with their responses to technical questions and exhibited great diligence when assisting live programs. They were good about being open about other customer experiences and troubleshooting methods learned from others using the platform.

Cons

FreeConference.com

  • Early on (many years ago), I occasionally had some trouble getting everyone onto the same call. But that's only happened a couple of times many moons ago.

Watchitoo StreamingPro

  • The lower bandwidth environments often had trouble participating in Watchitoo StreamingPro so a custom "low bandwidh" theme was created. I feel like Watchitoo could offer more to more people if they catered to those with lower internet speeds and slower computers, or shoddy mobile service.
  • The external media search functionality is great and can add a lot to a program, but it could be more user-friendly and a bit more configurable. I like to narrow my searches for specific content, colors, file types, shapes, sizes, formats, etc. Watchitoo peaked into the Internet, but I often had to search, find, download, save, upload instead of pulling directly into the program. NOTE: I am typically more particular in my media searches than others.
  • Lastly, I'd say combining a ZUI (zoom user interface) would be a potentially interesting feature to add to Watchitoo. The idea in my mind is a multi-point feed show where folks are in relation to one another in the world. Somewhat how Google Earth toggles between points, but also like how Prezi presentation can have content spread out over a larger map area.

Alternatives Considered

FreeConference.com

I selected freeconferences.com at the time because I didn't have access to my webex account and I was crunched for time . I was a bit amazed/"Taken back" as i wondered why this wasn't protocol already. The platform is easy, free, a no-brainer.

Watchitoo StreamingPro

Adobe Connect is a tried, true and trusted platform given the Adobe name is widely recognized everywhere. Watchitoo offers a bit more of a start-up feel and are often much more responsive in term of customer service. Account managers were open to multiple modes of communication and constantly making themselves available, even to support ad hoc programs. Larger platforms would re-assign new account liaisons and technical support staff. Knowledge Management with respect to our use of the platform and previous troubles/lessons learned was much more fluid with Watchitoo

Watchitoo StreamingPro

  • Better customer service; it improved production quality and allow for a custom look-and-feel that was missing from other platforms in use.
  • Enabled more participation; through the mobile features and easy connection procedure, users felt empowered using a simple program whereas other platforms were requiring special technician help.
