Web Conferencing Tools
With the rise of online education and remote professional work, it is important that tools be developed that facilitate efficient team collaboration among remote team members. In this research, the researcher designed a Remote Collaborative Presentation Tool (RCPT) that would allow multiple presenters to control the flow of a remote presentation (move forward/backward slides) without the need for awkward transitions among remote group members. 10 users participated in 1 hour-long session aimed at assessing both user needs/past experiences with various web conferencing and presentation tools, as well as testing the user-friendliness of a RCPT prototype. Overall, the RCPT was received very positively by all participants, and all participants successfully completed the seven tasks that they were asked to perform in order to test the most important features of the RCPT. Participants generally thought that the RCPT was a useful tool, although many suggested design updates. Data was also collected around the context of participants’ past experience using a variety of web conferencing and presentation tools in both educational and professional settings. Though this research yielded much useful data for the future of this tool, it is important that additional research be performed to test the usability and functionality of the RCPT with the design updates made in this round of research, as well as research to assess the feasibility of how this tool might integrate with current web conferencing and presentation tools.
