Small to midsize businesses and educators.
Vyew is a browser-based free and pay web conferencing service tailored for e-learning and seminars. As with similar services, the software features live video conferencing, live desktop sharing, and supports the sharing of many popular document types. The platform offers plug-ins ideal for online classroom use, such as a graphing calculator and quizzes. Further distinguishing the system are robust document mark-up tools, which include a suite of drawing tools. Vyew is also ideal for remote assistance, as the desktop sharing feature allows for remote control of keyboard and mouse.
In addition to its standard pricing tiers, Vyew offers several premium services. Businesses can purchase the ability to brand conferences with custom color schemes and display banner ads. Unique chat room URLs can also be purchased to simplify invitations. However, limitations on the number of simultaneous users in a classroom and in the ways hosts can charge for attendance (e.g. pay-per-view isn’t an option) make Vyew inadequate for larger seminars and certain business models.
