Web based video conferencing refers to live meetings, presentations or training sessions that are carried out through the internet. With web conferences, each person is seated at his or her computer. People are connected to each other through the internet.
The conference typically involves people clicking on links that are provided through email invitations. Web based video conferences can either be one-way or interactive. One speaker who addresses the other participants characterizes one-way conferences. Interactive conferences involve discussions and input from the participants of the conference. In the past, web conferences where not held live but currently they are done in real time and make it easy for people from all over the world to meet without actually making physical contact with each other.
Web based applications make it possible for participants to retain anonymity if they wish to do so. This function is ideal for people who prefer to be discreet during such conferences.
