Why web conferencing and desktop sharing?
BigMarker sees the power of people getting together in a live setting to learn from experts, discuss topics important to them, and connect with peers. Its goal is to make online learning more personal by digitizing what people have been doing at real-world conferences for decades. Desktop sharing is the easiest way to display this type of knowledge. With the click of a button, anyone inside the conference room can showoff what they have been working on.
BigMarker is on five continents, connecting members in over 180 countries. Anyone can have free access to quality web conferencing, something that GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, or Webex do not provide. Someone in Australia can share their desktop with someone in New York.
“We want to connect anyone who is working on something amazing,” says BigMarker’s Founder & CEO, Zhu-Song Mei. “Desktop sharing allows makers to share anything on their computer. It’s another step to complementing the great learning networks out there by providing a live option that creates a more personal and interactive experience for many people at once.”
BigMarker hopes that by offering its service for free, it will expand the use of professional webinar technology for global knowledge sharing, making the world a more connected place.
