FaceFlow: Free real time video conferencing

Share this post:  
FaceFlow is a great web2.0 tool . It is a video conferencing system that allows up to four participants to video conference in real time. I know some teachers and educators get scary when it comes to online conferencing systems given the complexity and advanced technological knowledge they often require, but let me assure you that FaceFlow is completely different. It is very easy to use and does not call for any advanced tech skills .

Applications of FaceFlow in education

I know FaceFlow does not allow for more than four participants to video conference which means that we can not use it with the whole class. But we can use it with lagging or struggling students who need extra reinforcement in their learning .I am pretty sure you can come up with other ideas of how to suit this tool to your teaching needs . Remember The random chat option that FaceFlow offers is not to be used with students without the teacher's supervision.
That’s it about FaceFlow: Free real time video conferencing.
