GoToWebinar is a web conferencing top that allows you to cplaborate with any number of people from all over the world. Unlike other conferencing tops, which require you to pay for the number of participants joining your event, GoToWebinar allows you to have unlimited participants for free.
Wave is Google’s next-generation online cplaboration top. It brings together many different services, such as Google Docs, Gmail, Calendar, Talk, and Reader into one single application. Wave is also a completely open source platform, allowing anyone to use it under the Apache license.
In this section, I will discuss how Google Wave can be integrated with GoToWebinar. One of the most important features missing in the GoToWebinar setup is the ability to integrate video calling. This feature is present in Google Wave. So, if you are using GoToWebinar for a large meeting or conference, it would make sense to leverage Google Wave’s video capabilities. Below I have provided a couple of sample outline for an article on this topic:
1.1. Pros and Cons of Integrating Google Wave and GoToWebinar
One of the biggest advantages of integrating Google Wave with GoToWebinar is that it gives you the ability to make video calls during your webinar. The video calling feature of Google Wave allows you to interact with your audience much more effectively than just audio. You can share your screen so that people can see what you are doing when you are conducting a presentation. Another advantage of integrating these two platforms is that now you don’t need to install special software on your computer in order to conduct a webinar. All you need to do is sign up for a free account on Google Wave, and you can start webinaring right away. Another advantage is that instead of having a single moderator who has to take notes during the session and then report them later, everyone in the meeting can take notes simultaneously and then share their notes with others. There are no limits on how many people can be participating in the conversation. Furthermore, since the conversation is saved in real time, even if someone missed the first few minutes of the conversation, she can still access it later and read what was discussed earlier on. And finally, since everything is shared online, there is no need for somebody to hpd on to the recording or distribute it later to everyone who participated in the meeting.
On the other hand, there are a few disadvantages associated with integrating these two platforms. First of all, there are not many people in the world who are aware of Google Wave. As a result they may not be able to join your webinar if you use Google Wave to host a webinar. Secondly, many people are already loyal users of GoToWebinar and may not want to use Google Wave as well. Thirdly, Google Wave does not allow you to record your video calls so if you want to send out a recording of your meeting after it has ended, you will have to use another service like uStream or YouTube for recording your video calls.
1.2. How can you Integrate Google Wave and GoToWebinar
Similar to Google Docs, Google Wave works with a browser based interface which means that you can use it without installing special software on your computer. To integrate your GoToWebinar account with Google Wave, you will have to create an account on Google Wave first and then fplow the steps below:
Step 1. In order to integrate your GoToWebinar account with Google Wave, log into your account at http://www.gotowebinar.com/ and click on ‘My Account’ in the top navigation bar. Then select ‘Manage Accounts’ from the drop down menu and click on ‘Add New Account’.
Step 3. Once you are logged into your account at Google Wave, look directly above the search bar in the left hand side of the page and click on the blue ‘Start Chat’ button (you can also hover over that button and click on ‘Start chat’. A new window will appear where you will be asked to enter an email address or an organization name that other people will use to add you as a contact in their address book. Make sure that this information accurately reflects who you are before continuing on to the next step. This step is crucial because once someone adds you as a contact in his address book and sends an invitation request, that person will have access to all of your documents stored at Google Wave. If someone else happens to add you as a contact and shares something confidential or private with you at a later date, then nobody would know about it unless you decide to tell someone about it yourself. Therefore it is advisable that you do not share anything confidential or private until after you have completed integrating your GoToWebinar account with Google Wave.
Step 4. Now hover over ‘Contacts’ tab at the top of the screen and select ‘Add Contacts’ option from the drop down menu (you can also click on ‘Contacts’ tab directly. Once again enter an email address or an organization name (and space. and complete adding at least one person as a contact in your list. After completing this step, you will notice that there is a small green icon next to each contact in your list which indicates that they already have a Google Wave account. After adding at least one person as a contact in your list, hover over ‘Contacts’ tab and select ‘Add Existing Contacts’ option from the drop down menu (you can also click on ‘Contacts’ tab directly. Select ‘Advanced’ option from the dialog box and click on ‘Find Contacts’ button at the bottom of the page (you can also click on ‘Find contacts’ button directly. Finally enter the email addresses or organization names of all existing contacts in your address book so that they all get added to your list (you can also enter multiple email addresses or organization names separated by space. After entering this information, click on ‘Add Contacts’ button at the bottom of the screen and then return back to your friends list where they should all be displayed as contacts (you can also view them directly by clicking on ‘Contacts’ tab.
Step 5. Now hover over ‘Contacts’ tab at the top of the screen and select ‘Find Contacts’ option from the drop down menu (you can also click on ‘Contacts’ tab directly. Search for all contacts that have been added by GoToWebinar administrators; although it is advisable that you do not send invitations for integration until after all attendees have completed registration process for your event (i.e., after registration period has ended. On clicking any contact from this list, it will display all existing contacts from both services (Google Wave and GoToWebinar. listed under one name; in order to send an invitation request for integration from this contact simply click on ‘Invite…’ button (you can also click directly on invite button. under their profile picture at bottom of the page. To send an additional invitation request for integration from another contact simply click on ‘Invite…’ button under their profile picture at bottom of their page (you can also click directly on invite button. To remove an existing invitation request for integration simply click on ‘Remove Invitation…’ button under their profile picture at bottom of their page(you can also click directly on remove invitation button. When someone receives an invitation request they will receive a notification through e-mail or mobile phone depending upon what notification settings they have chosen for their account (i.e., if they chose notification settings for only e-mail in their account settings then they will receive an e-mail message; if they chose notification
