Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

Webconference.com – a virtual coffee shop – takes our global grassroots collaboration to the next level

Today, Webconference.com has helped us to launch an online conference and collaboration tool that gets us to an entirely game-changing level of teamwork. Utilizing the webconference.com service, we can now connect the many volunteers and literacy agents that come together to collect and distribute magazines to new readers. These meetings can happen anywhere, anytime. The web conference capability allows our teams to meet and to share information and lessons learned, within their own groups and across teams, pollinating MagazineLiteracy.org in communities across the U.S. and around the world.

Our success at MagazineLiteracy.org depends on organizing and equipping grassroots, community-based teams around the world with the information and tools they need to find and feed children and families hungry to read. So more invested time and dollars can provide direct support to new readers and the literacy agents we serve, we leverage online technology extensively to maximize our team-building success. webconference.com is a feature-rich application that allows us to integrate VoIP, video, screen-sharing, Web touring, live annotation, whiteboard, presentations, and file sharing, as well as recording of our events and training materials. We are looking forward to all that is now possible with our vastly improved communications and collaboration platform provided by webconference.com.
