The current Covid crisis has led to a boom in on-line collaboration and communication for the individual professional, the small team, or indeed a full, on-line conference.
This article is intended to give you a quick introduction to the most popular current tools and also a list of nearly everything you could possibly want.
Useful,free and Open Source, simple browser based collaboration/meeting tools.
Designed to be worked from your browser, no downloads or complex registrations – simply choose a unique meeting room name, which auto-generates as a unique url, then share the details with your collaborator(s).
The free version of Zoom, a very much ‘of the moment’ group communication tool, limits your per session time to 40 minutes alas.
It is also not without its critics for security, although as of this update (April 2020) Zoom are introducing the concept of the ‘waiting room’. You can find further additional security measures introduced by Zoom on their blog here.
This will enable meeting owners to pre-approve, in effect, joiners to their Zoom session. An approving cheer has risen from the Zoom community.
Not a new player in the street of collaboration, but widely used by larger businesses, because of the wealth of integrations with other software and tools that, in its maturity, offers the user many diverse collaborative and communication options.
If you are an Ms Windows users, then we think you will Microsoft Teams useful for large scale or one to one collaboration.
You can create different teams and interact with them discretely. You can chat or go visual with your camera, and also invite members to a team, even if they have a different web-mail address than you.
Even in the free version you can post bulletins, share files and have a common archive.
Here we can share, interact and post information, professional advice and details of anything from events to professional body updates.

About One to One
The One to One Project was established with charitable status in
1984, to provide long term professional support to adults (aged 18 and
over) in West Norfolk who are experiencing emotional and/or social
distress and mental health difficulties.
The Project has evolved and developed over the years to meet the needs of its diverse local community and now provides Counselling, Mentoring and Group Work in a comfortable and confidential environment near King’s Lynn town centre or in one of our outreach venues across the county.
Our aim is to provide a non-judgemental space in which you can
explore the difficulties you may be facing. Our services will provide
you with the opportunity to talk in confidence and work towards a
clearer understanding of yourself and your needs. We do not provide you
with answers or advice, but will support you in finding your own way
The One to One Project is part funded by the organisations you can
see at the foot of each web page. The remainder is made up from
charitable donations and relies on the generosity of our supporters and
those who use our services. Although we are committed to providing free
services to our clients, we encourage those, who are able, to make a
financial contribution towards the services they receive.
