SlideShare Introduces Zipcast

This February, Slideshare launched Zipcast, a new tool for online conferencing. Zipcast provides a space on the internet where users can present and hold meetings, all without downloading any additional software. The presenter is broadcast over webcam, while the viewers can phone-in or use the chat feature on the meeting page.

To use Zipcast, you must first register for an account on SlideShare. The basic account is free, but there are certain limitations (advertisements present, no private meetings). Paid accounts available include silver ($19/mo), gold ($49/mo), and platinum ($249/mo). The further you upgrade, the more features available to you.

So far, Zipcast seems to be a success. Upon entering a live Zipcast, everything seemed to be running very smoothly. The accessibility of the tool is definitely one of the biggest “pros”. Zipcast makes web conferencing quick, easy and inexpensive.

Interested in how Zipcast could be helpful to you? Here are 10 Ways to use Zipcast, from the SlideShare blog.
