Bridgit is a data conferencing tool which allows staff to share content from their computer securely with remote sites over the Internet. Bridgit can be used to enhance and support lectures delivered by videoconference and during a teleconference or videoconference. Presentations, applications, pictures, files, web sites and almost anything you can see on your computer can be shared. It is, however, unsuitable for sharing video (DVDs, animations, you tube clips etc).
CSU staff, external collaborators and students may create and join Bridgit conferences. Conferences can be secured with a password to ensure only invited participants can join and view the data being shared. Participants can share control, write or highlight on screen and it is displayed to all participants, view a list of other people who have joined and remotely control someone else's desktop once permission is granted. Staff can share their desktop with other CSU staff, people external to CSU & students.
