  • We demoed Nefsis today. I really liked the format and the multiple views for participants. It was easier to use than Live Classroom, but I need to know more about pricing and LMS integration. It allowed annotations and on-the-fly loading of materials, which is good. Cost could make it prohibitive. JUST LEARNED THAT NEFSIS IS NOT MAC COMPATIBLE.
  • Also, heard about Agora which can be installed in Sakai our LMS. This is extremely important for student/faculty member seamless access. I need to learn more and confirm if our IT will integrate it in our Sakai at some point.
