How do web conferencing work in real life? Zoom has a few (real?) Scenes made up.



How do web conferencing work in real life?

Web conferencing in real life: This is in many ways a funny, sometimes nerve-wracking affair.

In this respect, this video from Zoom is to be understood as a nice idea and suggestion.

Zoom doesn’t just have a “good” reputation in real life. In this respect, such a comedy also has a somewhat mitigating effect on one or the other.

There are quite a few customers with us who reject Zoom sessions. That’s why we use all possibilities as an alternative: From Teams to WebEx, GoToMeeting, TeamViewer and so on. Everything that the market has to offer and what your heart desires.

In addition to the web conferencing tools, classic collaboration tools are also in use. Here, too, we have created a market overview.

Good collaboration tools also come from Germany.

Who currently offers free or significantly cheaper collaboration tools? For a week now, various manufacturers have been offering some of their tools free of charge or much cheaper.

Classics from the USA are e.g. Trello, Asana or Slack (here our Slack Portrait). Google offers its G Suite and Microsoft the product Teams for free.

In our list of providers we have put together e.g. G Suite, Smartsheet, Trello, meistertask, monday, wire, slack or jostle. Take a look or check which of the methodology suits you best.

Web conferences in real life: Does everything always run so “densely packed” in a conference?

Quite possible, because the technical difficulties e.g. a functioning WLAN, a good transmission in general or the technical settings (whether loudspeaker or microphone on) have not yet been eliminated. This will be with us for a while.

The classic for mood or disturbance is dialing in from the car or screaming children in the background. Even more beautiful are colleagues who disappear to the toilet during the session and do not press the mute button. Everything has already been experienced.

Web Conferencing in Real Life – Life Is Hard and Unjust

That’s how long we have to live with human shortcomings, maintain contenance, reckon with one or the other faux pas and moderate it away with a smile.
