GoToWebinar does have chat sessions. It also records video and audio.
Generally what we do is use the chat window to post questions. The speaker
or moderator then reads the question to the group and answers the question


I think that the solution will work pretty well. The only downsides I am
aware of at the moment are:

.         Linux is not a supported platform: only Windows and Mac clients;

.         The video is recorded in Windows Media Player format, so some sort
of post-processing would likely be required to get it into a more open

tomorrow's phone call)


Hi Howard,
As I remember, the actions in this area were:
* Jon, to research options and make a proposal about how to have meetings of
some sort (face-to-face, remote video meeting, or webinars) in the spring
* Mike, to help Jon understand the gotowebinar technology that Eclipse is
I haven't had time to research or think things through yet, but might as
well bat things around on email. 

Here is one approach that I was going to explore:
* Set up an interactive members-only live webinar that gets recorded. The
general thrust would be like our previous face-to-face meetings, where there
is a presenter with interactive dialog with the OpenAjax members who attend.
The key difference is that the meeting would be over the Web instead of in
* We could reserve a couple of conference rooms for people to attend the
webinar in the same room together. For example, all of us from the Bay Area
could go to the same conference room, and maybe a similar thing could happen
in a few other locations.

But one key thing I don't know yet is whether gotowebinar or other services
provide interactive features, such as chat sessions. (I assume they do) Then
the next question is whether the interactive dialogs are captured by the
recording software. (I assume that they can only capture the main presenter,
which means the presenter has to repeat key questions that come up in the
chat sessions.)

Re face to face:
Does this mean that you decided not to pursue the remote thing?
