DIMDIMHow does it work?
DimDim runs entirely in your web browser, so it works on any computing platform.  Simply sign up for an account at http://www.dimdim.com and you can get started.  Once you have signed up, you can create a meeting immediately or schedule a meeting for a later date.  Then it’s just a matter of sending invitations to those with whom you’d like to meet.  Don’t worry – your invitees don’t have to create a DimDim account, they can just click on the link provided in their invite email and they will be instantly connected to your meeting.
Features
  • Video Broadcasting – The host of the meeting can choose to broadcast imagery from his or her webcam during the meeting.  This would be useful in classroom or presentation setting because those attending the presentation can see the speaker’s face.
  • Audio Broadcasting– The free version of DimDim allows the meeting host and up to three additional participants to broadcast audio from their computer.  Use this for small group chats when group members can’t meet face-to-face.
  • Public Chat – Each meeting included a public, text-based chat feature, so that all members of the meeting can talk together.
  • Media Sharing – The presenter controls what each attendee is seeing in the meeting.  He or she can choose from a powerpoint presentation, web page or document to share with attendees.   The presenter can also display a whiteboard that attendees can all write to.  By using a browser plugin, the presenter can even share his or her desktop with the audience.
Food for thought
Perhaps you know someone who could give a great presentation to your class or organization, but can’t make it to Macomb.  Have them setup a DimDim meeting and give an online presentation.  No travel required!
