I have to go overseas for two weeks. Some of my students will also attending some two-week-long workshops but I (also my students) would like to have our class running during these days (4 sessions, 2 weeks × 2 sessions each week).

Is there any software available and suitable?

  • I need to talk
  • they may ask and may also send some documents, but I can handle the docs using email or apps like WhatsApp or Telegram or whatsoever
  • kind of voice streaming (this is what I wonder about)

    Why not Google Hangouts or Skype? – Jedi Jun 12 '16 at 16:02

    As Jedi said you can start a google hang out,skype, or etc session and have all you students join it. You will see all of them and they will see you with video and audio. – cybernard Jun 12 '16 at 17:13
  • but aren't there any software designed for this situation!? – a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae Sep 15 '16 at 21:35

Teamviewer is the software I've been favoring lately, so I'll add it to what the others said.


  • screen sharing
  • audio and video sharig
  • file transfer capabilites
  • free for personal use
  • cross-platform
  • what is this software designed for!? I really look for a software designed for this situation, if there exists any! – a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae Sep 15 '16 at 21:34
  • At the time of writing this, the following link: meeting.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx mentions and then details the "Online Presentation / Meeting". It seems if would fit your usage scenario quote well. – elder elder Sep 16 '16 at 12:41
  • In other words: yes, it is designed for this exact situation - you share your screen with other people you invited to partake in your presentation, you can interact via video/voice and you can send/receive files. – elder elder Sep 16 '16 at 12:52
