Thanks to the fast acceleration of technology, there are many video conference platforms allowing us to hold an online meeting and discuss with our overseas colleagues from other branches office. This makes remote collaboration easy as a piece of cake. We can share our screen, PowerPoint, proposal and more as we can do at a face-to-face meeting. Some popular software/applications for video conference are, take a few examples, Zoom, RingCentral Office, ClickMeeting, Zoho Meeting, Skype, and more. Today, I am gonna show you the special one I prefer using, Zoom, which also allows you to record Zoom meeting on your computer and iPhone.
