"Videofacilitator has been an excellent tool for us to use when engaging with a wide variety of people. Initially we used it as it was a free trial during COVID-19 lockdown – we have now just subscribed to the annual plan as we were very impressed on a number of accounts:
· Attendees don’t need to download an app
· Simple and intuitive to use
· Excellent tools for facilitator and attendees
· Easily identified symbols for tools
· Can easily link attendees to any other site that has an URL
· The team are very receptive to suggestions for improvements
· VF is constantly being improved
We had workshops that we wanted to progress - some internally, others with our wider community. After much researching we felt that Videofacilitator offered a wide range of choices especially for consultation sessions and workshops.
During these sessions we have presented ppts, polled attendees, used rooms as breakouts where we have had discussions linking out to brainstorming boards, survey monkey, as well as to google docs.
We have found that it is simple to explain, we developed our own guidelines for users and attendees, although now VF have developed some.
Once people use this site they see that VF has advantages that some of the other ‘bigger’ names do not – at a very reasonable price as well.."

“I’ve tried Zoom, Skype and other “go-to” platforms but they just don’t cut it.
There’s so much mucking around with downloads and sign-ups and IDs and passwords and trying to get my Office Business Premium account to speak to Skype etc but VideoFacilitator has removed all of those barriers.
The setup is ideal for us as a music school as it is just like the studio onsite with one main lobby where everybody can interact and private rooms off to the side where lessons take place. Transparency is very important to us (we have glass walls facing inwards to our reception area on site), so the ability to move freely in and out of rooms for both staff and parents is highly valued. As the Academy Director, I am able to check in on teachers and students to see how everything is going and maintain quality management.
The lack of friction in setting up is greatly appreciated by our clients.
Although there is a one-off download for mobile users, it so easily logs users in by keeping a history of rooms to which users have previously connected so there’s no need to open the browser and enter the room name again. The platform is very well laid out, functional and aesthetically pleasing.
It’s so easy to use. VideoFacilitator has given me a competitive edge in the online market, especially during the 2020 pandemic when all my competitors jumped on Zoom without giving it any thought and all I ever hear from music teachers, both individuals and schools, are concerns and frustrations and the constant need for tweaking. VideoFacilitator has made online learning easier to conduct and easier to sell to our clients.”
