Comments from some of those who selected BlueJeans as one of their top tools

“Many people will mention Zoom or MS Teams as their favorite tool for live online collaboration. However, I prefer definitely BlueJeans for this purpose. I use BlueJeans especially for collaboration on a distance (the application has limitations from the perspective of a webinar or virtual classroom). BlueJeans is easy to use because people you invite, have only to use their browser to collaborate synchronously. The quality of audio and video is very good, although some individuals report issues concering sound. You can chat, share screens, use a whiteboard and work in break-out rooms. Again: you don’t learn from every online meeting.” Wilfred Rubens, Netherlands, 2020
