Notes:

  • Marratech is much better than Adobe Connect when more than 3 participants need to send video. However, Marratech has two major drawbacks:
    • NESCent does not have a license for it -- so only use it when meetings include participants from NCEAS.
    • Installation and initial configuration is error-prone and time-consuming -- so it should only be used for recurring meetings.
  • iChat is better than Skype when video is used. However, it only works when all participants are using Macs.
