There are renowned companies that provide virtual collaboration services like Adobe, with Connect, Cisco, with WebEx, Citrix, with GoToMeeting, or Microsoft, with Skype and Lync. The innovation in HyperTalk consists of its flexibility and openness, its capability to offer a high synergy between implemented communication and collaboration instruments. Nevertheless, HyperTalk.net is a web-based solution, so, there are no additional software packages to be installed on client-side. In addition, the HyperTalk components can be easily integrated with most of content management systems (Joomla!, WordPress, e.g.), or learning management platforms (for instance, Moodle or Sakai), as well as project management/bug tracking tools (Redmine, e.g.).
HyperTalk CaaS mechanism (collaboration as a service) consists of special plug-in components dedicated to the CMS/LMS mentioned above. Secondly, each end-user benefits by the own private section within the virtual library: 2 GB storage space for the documents/presentations to be shared among the meetings, webinar sessions, or video files recorded during the live sessions. Anyway, the challenge comes from the mobility, while the native applications should implement similar features as the web version.
