wonder.me

Principal function(s): Video conferencing

Wonder is a web conferencing platform where people can meet and communicate. Hosts can make different areas and participants can go from one area to another spontaneously or intentionally. Areas are presented in the form of a circle. To join or leave a conversation, just move your picture to the circle, or out of the circle. Hosts are also able to move participants between different areas and speak to all groups. They can also name areas and change their background images. 1500 people can join a meeting, whereas 15 people can be in one circle. If the circle is already full, participants will get a notification. Evaluation: wonder.me is a very good option for teachers who want to meet online with their students and discuss different topics. It is also suitable for groups of students who want to meet together. It is a very useful tool for practicing speaking skills and for ice breaking activities.

Cost: Free with registration
