We won’t hide the fact that we think the new WebEx Meetings (it’s free) is a great back to school app.
You can jump online and video conference with two other people, view each others’ computer screens so you can collaborate on projects or ideas and record the whole thing so you can share it with other people. It can be used for teaching and it’s also great for studying together.
