Deliver Your News to the World Enables the Disabled to Participate in University of Tennessee Web & Video Conferencing


LOS ANGELES, CA, November 7, 2006 – The University of Tennessee Boling Center for Developmental Disabilities currently uses MegaMeeting’s browser based video and web conferencing software to provide training to distance learning participants who would otherwise not be able to travel and attend these meetings.

The Boling Center for Developmental Disabilities (BCDD) is an interdisciplinary program that supports children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families through training, service, applied research, information dissemination, planning, and policy development.

In addition to helping their members virtually attend conferences that they normally would not be able to make, BCDD also utilizes MegaMeeting’s web and video conferencing for its Administration and Board of Directors, as well as to conduct seminars, company meetings, training of both clients and employees, for quality assurance and to diagnose issues.

According to Elizabeth Bishop, BCDD’s Community Education Director, “MegaMeeting has allowed my staff to operate more freely with distance technology and create a competitive edge for our program to other programs nationally.” Bishop has found MegaMeeting software to be an excellent media to conduct trainings.

Prior to implementing the MegaMeeting software Bishop explained that they used a very antiquated, donated video conferencing system that was very expensive to maintain and operate. There was also an issue of whether the equipment would work and if the connections were still active prior to each use. MegaMeeting has removed the unpredictability and has saved them time and money, increased their productivity and decreased the aggravation.

The specific features of MegaMeeting that BCDD implements most often are the video conferencing capabilities that allow meeting attendees to see each other, the ability to share a PowerPoint presentation via the Internet, and screen sharing capabilities.

Some of the main reasons BCDD chose MegaMeeting over other web and video conferencing systems include the interactive ability of the software, the ease of use and the ability to adjust during conference events. BCDD also appreciates the amount of control they maintain in conducting their events and the ease of setting up meetings and extending invitations to their participants.
