Tip #7: Sending a Web Page vs. Application Sharing: 

Tip #7: Sending a Web Page vs. Application Sharing Sending a Web Page Pushes page to attendees Opens new window Subsequent pages replace previous in same window Attendees can navigate elsewhere until new page pushed Presenter cannot change window contents except to push another page

Tip #7: Sending a Web Page vs. Application Sharing: 

Tip #7: Sending a Web Page vs. Application Sharing Application Sharing As mentioned with PowerPoint earlier Since you are attending as well, can suggest 'Full Screen' mode if needed Much better solution for co-browsing the Internet What is shared does not impact audio broadcast Unless a child window, non-shared apps display as gray box Letting Others Present

Tips #8-: Audio/Video: 

Tips #8-: Audio/Video Two participants: video shows each other Three+ participants: video follows the audio Muting microphone mutes application audio Microphone audio is 'faster' than speaker video Video IS NOT streaming video.

Summary: 

Summary Some rules apply to good presenting regardless of the medium Web conferencing is not an in-person presentation delivered over the Internet Both have their advantages; understand and exploit them Sametime 7.5 is a no-brainer for IBM Business Partners and a wise choice for customers.
