Several of the bloggers here at WebWorkerDaily are big fans of the free web conferencing application Yugma. It’s a free, full-featured online meeting tool that is particularly good for inviting other participants on-the-fly to join a meeting even if they haven’t downloaded the Yugma application. Windows, Mac or Linux users can join in.
This week, Yugma announced a new version for Skype: Yugma SE (Skype Edition).
Yugma SE is a plug-in for Windows- or Mac-based Skype users, and is available for free here. Like the standard Yugma application, it allows Skype users to share their desktops with each other during Skype sessions. Users can sign into the plug-in with their Skype names, and up to 20 participants can collaborate at one time for free. (Yugma itself went from a maximum of 10 to 20 participants recently.)
Yugma already had a Skype edition available, but the new SE plug-in eases the process of using the applications together with single sign-on in Skype. I’ve been noticing that a lot more people I work with are using Skype, and I’ve been a fan of Yugma for a long time. If you’re on Skype, give the plug-in a try. You can learn more about it here.
