If one wants to teach math online in real time, what free plugin(s) would be best? I assume a white board interface and real time audio would be great?
I've used http://www.scribblar.com/. It's not a plugin, but I can link to my free room and the students go straight there. You can also embed the room, which I have yet to try. With Scribblar I can save diagrams and equations etc for use in the lesson and get things nice and neat for the lesson....because my diagram drawing sucks!
Thx, Paul. I'm looking into Scribblar. How does the audio feature work? Is it real time like Skype, or does it let you and students record their voices for play back by others? Is there a lag time?
I'll go check it out a little further.
it talks about audio, but I think you have to use external audio. If you create an account and put your Skype name in the profile it adds links to peoples Skype accounts after ther name. Click on the link and Skype launches.
Here's another one to look at http://liveminutes.com/. This one has audio built into it.
