In my company, an Open Source BPM solution editor, we use a lot Go To Meeting and Go To Training (Citrix) for trainings. It works on Windows, Mac and iOS, Android. But not on Linux. And it seems they will not support Linux soon. I know that Webex (Cisco) supports Linux, but is far more expensive and the CTO told us "No!".
Thanks to the success of our Open Source solution, we have more and more demand for training with Ubuntu desktop & server, and we would like to be able to do it. Skype is not a solution, and Google Hangouts neither.
So, would you have any advice? We need:
- sharing screen & webcam
- managing who speak (mute, unmute)
- a text chat
- up to 6 people connected + manager of the session
- record the session
- the ability to do some remote control over the Internet would be a plus but is not compulsory
If it is Linux only, it is not a problem. If it is not free of charge, it must not cost much than Go To Training.
There is an interesting comparison chart on Wikipedia, however, there are too many to test them all. So if you have any feedback, you are welcome.
