My experience with web conferencing was positive. Web Conferencing allows people to chat instantly through the internet. It allows businesses to conduct meetings across large distances and cut the cost of flying employees out to meetings. Power point presentations, text chat, and whiteboards are a few features of web conferencing. I often use Skype to communicate with family members who live far away and is definitely a big step up from talking on the phone. It is helpful because you can also share files.
