I am now a Dim Dim convert

I just collaborated online with a cartooning buddy (Simon Kneebone) of mine using dim dim.

I managed to communicate a complex story about a 2 year, community behaviour change project to Simon. My idea is to create a visual-report … less text and more pictures/cartoons to make the final evaluation report more readable, fun and effective.

In dim dim, we had the use of a shared white board and could make edits to shared documents. Using pictures and by writing the occasional word, we were able to effectively “show” each other ideas, concepts and solutions. And all for FREE!

We used the Skype platform to talk to each other … it worked fine with dim dim running simultaneously.

I’m now a convert!

If you know of other visual collaboration tools that are free … let me know!

Cheers

    Thanks for the shoutout about Dimdim. If you have a headset or webcam, try using Dimdim’s VoIP and video sharing features – perhaps you won’t even need Skype any longer!

  2. Hi Geoff,

    I think you might also be interested in checking out Mikogo for free screen sharing online meetings, which allows you to share any screen content in real time and true color quality. 256 bit encryption and 100% free for all users.
    With Mikogo you have an “application selection” feature so you can choose which applications and open windows you wish to transmit to your participants and which ones you wish to keep hidden for privacy reasons. Great when you want to only share one document or application.
    You can access Mikogo quickly from within Skype with the Mikogo Skype Extra. Free online meetings with free Skype calls. You can see how this works on our video tutorials.
    I hope you have a moment to take a look at our website. If you would like more info, free free to send me an email.

    All the best,
