Web Meeting: GoToMeeting/GoToTraining
SBMI offers GoToMeeting as a web meeting tool for faculty. It can be used for online synchronous teaching, online office hours or any ad hoc meeting. Teaching faculty will have their individual presenter accounts and the Distance Education team will create online class sessions and send faculty links to these sessions. Smaller classes will use GoToMeeting (up to 25 participants). Larger classes will use GoToTraining (up to 50 participants). Faculty not teaching any course may also request a GotoMeeting Essential account that hosts up to 6 participants. Contact DE@uth.tmc.edu for account setup.
