OpenACircle is a free, fully-equipped online collaboration environment. It allows users to open a permanent, online â€œcircleâ€ for each project, team or customer, and invite others in to work together using free built-in tools, including video and audio conferencing, desktop and file sharing, presentations, blogs, and more.
Online meetings and presentations can be recorded for later viewing, from multiple usersâ€™ viewpoints, so people who miss or skip meetings can catch up later.
These meeting recordings, along with documents, chat threads and virtually any sort of file, can be stored in the circle for as long as the members choose. The circle becomes the â€œheadquartersâ€ for the team, project or customer relationship.
At any time, up to 25 circle members can â€œGo Liveâ€ and instantly launch a video or audio conference. These conferences are designed around how people work together in the real world. Because people talk in small clusters, OpenACircle allows circle members to view any three Web cams and one desktop at a time. As new clusters invoke conversation, members can customize their views to have face-to-face communications with those talking or presenting.
