It is important to take into account the communication needs of the group when choosing a videoconference solution.

All institutional computers are appropriately equipped for the videoconference solutions presented. They support all features and have total logistical and operational autonomy.


It is a great solution for informal communications without specific requirements. You can share screens, files, chat 1-to-1 and use instant messaging. It is also suitable for informal video or audio calls.

Skype is installed in all institutional computers, since it is a part of the Windows operating system. You can also use the web version of Skype.

To start a videoconference, you only need to know the person's address and use a laptop.

Zoom (Colibri)

It was designed to ensure collaboration through an integrated system that includes web conferences, group messaging, and online meetings. You can manage breakout sessions and create URLs for individual connections. This allows you to adapt the configuration of the service to the requirements in each case. It is also possible to create interactions between the presenter and the participants through features like the virtual raised hand. In this case, the organiser has control over the sound and the presentations. The chat feature can be used to ensure a collaborative environment.

By using the Zoom platform, FCCN provides a Web collaboration system to the RCTS community for distance learning and remote meetings, known as Colibri.

It is available
