Overall Satisfaction with GoToMeeting

I teach in Denver and many students are out of state. GoToMeeting helps connect in a very effective manner with anyone, anytime. It's accessible from many different platforms which is incredibly helpful when making sure our students are all on the same page and expectations are clearly communicated at all times.
  • The ability to share screens seamlessly
  • Being able to hand off presenter responsibilities
  • The user experience changes depending on device
  • Would love to see a more consistent look
  • Honestly, there are a lot of other options. You just need to find the one that works for you.
  • Zoom
Pricing and familiarity where a big part of the decision, although sometimes I feel there is easier integration between Outlook and Zoom then there is between Outlook and GoToMeeting. Of course, it could very well be a user issue on my end, but I feel Outlook and Zoom play together a little better.
Of course a lot of the reliability depends on network demands and other issues outside of GoToMeeting's control. If at work, I don't have any hesitation hosting meetings, but if I'm out of the office it can be a bit sketchy to host a meeting and expect everything to work seamlessly.
The main advantage of this type of software is facilitating availabilities of parties involved to attend and/or be part of a collaborative effort. Without GoToMeeting schedules and location would make it impossible to have some of the key players necessary for decision and conversation to come together on a regular basis.
After a short time getting familiar with the dashboard and all the features it becomes second nature setting up everything necessary to host successful gatherings. Love the fact you don't have to necessarily install specific software to be able to participate or join, since there are times when that is not an option.
GoToMeeting gives users the ability to bring people together from anywhere into a single environment. By being able to screen share and pass off presenter responsibilities, it has the potential to be very interactive and productive. Sometimes, more productive than actually being in the same room at the same time.
