LiveMinutes is not widely talked about, but it should be. The application offers a number of handy tools that can help users convey information and insight during online meetings and conferences. The application allows the user to create any kind of meeting atmosphere they like by adding visualizations and more. The current version is user friendly without sacrificing the technical options that can help reduce the chances of missed information due to poor audio or other issues.
LiveMinutes comes with a number of appealing benefits. One of the most notable is the user’s ability to switch from computer audio to Skype. Low audio quality is one of the most frustrating problems that can occur when inviting multiple people to a meeting. Each user may be utilizing a different computer, which may be older or newer than the other attendees. LiveMinutes provides an easy switch option that can help ensure each participant can hear and see the meeting content as it is presented.
LiveMinutes lets the user keep their visualizations and meeting content at the focus of the interface. The interface takes several seconds to load, but it is well worth the wait. Icons glide into place while a list of attendees appears along the left hand side. All the basic tools and information is presented to the user so they can easily access them and begin adding documents, accessing the whiteboard or embedding maps. Videos are not yet supported, but will be in the future.
A new user can register for a LiveMinutes account by clicking the black “Sign Up” button found along the right hand side of the homepage. The image to the left will change into the registration form. The form asks the user to provide a username, email address and password. After submitting the form, the user is taken directly to the meeting dashboard and can begin putting together their first event.
LiveMinutes invite all users to try its service for free. There are no subscription requirements and the user does not have to pay for any of the features. Everything is included and the user can create as many meetings as they like. Creating an account gives the user access to the after meeting reports. Users can also work through Skype, which is also free to sign up for (although some Skype services may require a fee).
LiveMinutes is a great resource for anyone who needs to host online meetings and webinars. The application is flexible enough to support numerous types of content. The user can also work with maps, whiteboards and other elements to show attendees what they are talking about. Reports generated after meetings allow the user to keep track of what was said and done during the gathering. Educators, students, teams and small businesses can really appreciate the benefits of LiveMinutes.
