OUHSC IT Cisco MeetingPlace is a technology-based meeting service that combines audio conferencing and web conferencing tools to provide customers within the Oklahoma Health Center the ability to schedule, conduct and participate in online, collaborative meetings without leaving the office or from remote locations.

Audio conferencing is a voice-only telephone conference call between individuals or groups at three (3) or more locations. All participants in an audio conference can hear each other and can speak with one another interactively. A basic audio conference allows multiple participants to dial into the same telephone number, enter a meeting ID and be automatically joined to the conference call.

Web conferencing is a web-based screen, document and application sharing tool that allows multiple participants to see, interact with, comment on and use shared tools relevant to the topic of the meeting. Participants can view documents or slideshows provide by the originator of the meeting or collaborative edit shared "whiteboards" and relevant documents.
