Looking for a convenient way to have a team meeting, collaborate on edits needs to a live group, or tutor a student online? Twiddla is a real-time online collaboration tool that might just meet these demands. It’s simple to use and free for anyone for a basic version, with no plug-ins or downloads, no need to work around complex firewalls, no advanced scheduling. It’s available 24-7 and the only requirement is a computer with an internet connection and a web browser. Just missing an mobile app to really make it rock!
It’s browser-agnostic, user friendly, and probably more fun than you’re supposed to be having at work.
What does ‘browser agnostic’ mean?
It means Twiddla works with any browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explore) on both Mac and PC – it doesn’t care which one you have. This means it’s even more available to anyone, anywhere.
What does it cost?
You can use Twiddla free of charge for quick meetings and collaboration sessions, it says the voice chat works in the free trial version but it always has issues. They offer a few paid subscription options in case you want to get a bit more fancy or if you want to build your own application on top of the Twiddla platform.
The great about being an educator, an offer for free Pro-level subscriptions for Educational Use, with no issues with the voice chat. Sign up for a Free Trial, then send them an email (email@example.com) from a .edu address and they will hook you with a Pro account FREE of charge. Be sure to include your username!
What is Twiddla not designed to do?
Twiddla is not:
