Desktop Sharing Utilities

Collaborative workspaces are applications that allow groups of individuals to share workspaces without having to be co-located. This include audio and video conferencing, shared online applications, and desktop sharing utilities. Rockcliffe members have access to the applications listed below.

Sococo
Description
Sococo is a collaborative environment that specializes in the ability to share access to desktops and be able to seamlessly present information without having to constantly change the presenter (as is the case with WebEx).

Potential Uses
For educators and professional trainers. Shared utilities offer opportunities for meetings, collaborations, webinars, and other online synchronous meeting opportunities through video or audio.


WebEx
Description
WebEx is a desktop sharing tool that can be adapted to very large groups. The back-end infrastructure provides for high quality frame rates and VOIP capabilities. Our shared service is only available for bookings for Rockcliffe professional members.

Potential Uses
For educators and professional trainers. Shared utilities offer opportunities for meetings, collaborations, webinars, and other online synchronous meeting opportunities through video or audio.


Join.Me
Description
While not as robust as WebEx, Join.Me is one of the few desktop sharing services which work in both Second Life and OpenSimulator. Our shared service is available upon request with prior booking.

Potential Uses
For educators and professional trainers. Shared utilities offer opportunities for meetings, collaborations, webinars, and other online synchronous meeting opportunities through video or audio.


TeamSpeak
Description
TeamSpeak is one of the three primary VOIP systems used by gamers that is publicly available for large groups (the others being Mumble and Ventrilo). The system is capable of handling up to 400 concurrent connections. Rockcliffe’s teamspeak server is available for public use however the creation of dedicated chat room or an increase to the number of concurrent connections would require a booking reservation.
