Media­Tech Solu­ti­ons for Vir­tu­al Meetings

Online tools and vir­tu­al mee­tings are not­hing new. Howe­ver, with the rapidly spre­a­ding COVID-19 virus, many peo­p­le around the world are using home offices, online pro­vi­ders are expe­ri­en­cing a boom in user numbers. 

We have com­pi­led our Top 3 for vir­tu­al mee­tings here:

  1. Slack: Our team favo­ri­te is Slack. By the way, that was it even befo­re the Coro­na pan­de­mic. Slack is a plat­form on which we can exch­an­ge infor­ma­ti­on quick­ly and easi­ly in both the­ma­tic groups and direct mes­sa­ges. Tele­pho­ne calls and con­fe­rence calls also work per­fect­ly. We have also set up a “Coro­na-Info” group the­re, whe­re the­re is room for ques­ti­ons and we can exch­an­ge infor­ma­ti­on about sup­port pos­si­bi­li­ties. Not yet with Slack? Then plea­se send a mes­sa­ge to contact@​mth-​potsdam.​de.
  2. Goog­le Han­gouts: It should be fast and uncom­pli­ca­ted. In con­trast to Slack, the­re is the pos­si­bi­li­ty to invi­te par­ti­ci­pan­ts* with their email addres­ses for a video call. We find this prac­ti­cal and the qua­li­ty of the calls is - of cour­se depen­ding on the own inter­net con­nec­tion - also good. This makes Goog­le Han­gouts easy to use for team mee­tings or with exter­nal partners*.
  3. Mir­co­soft Teams: Micro­soft Teams is also used by some of our part­ners. Due to the high demand, Micro­soft is curr­ent­ly offe­ring to use their plat­form for the next 6 months free of charge.

We are also hap­py about fur­ther tools and expe­ri­ence reports by mail to contact@​mth-​potsdam.​de, becau­se for the time being we #sta­ya­thome.
