GoToMeeting is a remote meeting and collaboration tool used for web conferences and online presentations. It is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to organize and attend online meetings. General features include:
As of Fall 2014, GoToMeeting is now available through KATIE which provides the following benefits:
ITS currently has 3 license for Meeting (max 100 attendees) and 1 for Webinar (max 100 attendees). We strongly recommend that you make a reservation well in advance due to the limited licenses available. For reservation and support please contact Multimedia at x1823, email [email protected], or submit the GoToMeeting Schedule Request Form below.
We recommend using Google Hangouts (up to 15 people) or Skype (up to 25 people) for video conferencing sessions. When you're wanting a more structured, controlled environment, GoToMeeting (up to 100 people) is ideal. Google Hangouts and Skype sessions may be initiated by the Luther community at any time; GoToMeeting sessions require advance notification and setup by ITS.
If you have not used GoToMeeting through Luther, an account will be created for you after your meeting request has been submitted. Instructions will be sent on how to activate your account and download the GoToMeeting client.
If you have previously used GoToMeeting (through Luther), your account will be re-activated prior to your meeting.
Accounts are typically deactivated within 24 hours following your scheduled meeting due to the limited number of licenses. Departments interested in a dedicated license should contact the Technology Help Desk.
A scheduled meeting may be started early to give organizers and presenters time to prepare. It is also recommended that the meeting start early so that attendees can connect and make sure all their settings are correct.

When the Meeting is ended, the session will be converted. (Mac OS X: You will be prompted to convert. Click on Convert Recording.)
The first time you use GoToMeeting, you will need to make sure it is configured properly. You should only have to do this once.
Recorded sessions are stored locally on your personal computer. The default locations are:
By default, recorded sessions are encoded using a proprietary codec. Unless the recording is converted into a standard format, users will be required to have GoToMeeting installed on their workstation in order to view it. Converting the recordings removes this codec and allows it to be shared via email, DVD, etc.
