Desktop Collaboration with Remotely Located Partners

Welcome to Bridgit 3 data conferencing - an easy way to share information. Intuitive, secure and economical, multiple participants can share webcam views and engage in voice-over-IP discussions. Each participant has the option to deliver a presentation, teach a class or recieve feedback on a document.

Brock Faculty and Staff can:

  1. Initiate a conference at any time.
  2. Join a conference by choosing from a list of active sessions.
  3. Invite participants to quickly and easily join your conference. Selecting "Invite" automatically activates your email program to send out conference information.
  4. Protect information with our SSL security. You simply choose a password to hold a confidential conference that keeps your data safe and secure.
  5. Share your desktop through a simple mouse click. Participants can request and then instantly take over the sharing, or the person sharing can disable this option.
  6. Talk to and view participating colleagues.
  7. Decide whether to extend control of your computer to participants.
  8. Write notes over the shared desktop and permit participants to create and view annotations. More than one participant can write at the same time.
  9. Highlight information - in fact, each participant can use a personalized arrow tool to point to particular items.
  10. If your conference is hosted in Welch Hall 147, you can save your work. All participants can write directly in a shared Notebook software file, and all notes, annotations and screen captures can be saved in that file and subsequently sent to the participants as PDFfiles, graphics or posted web pages.
  11. Annotations may also be saved when groups collaborate using Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint.
