Sonday System – Which Sharing Platforms Work Best

While most sharing platforms will work with Sonday System, Zoom is the most recommended. Here's why:

1. It's easy to select which screen to share. Many other apps require you to share your entire screen or pay additional fees for more screensharing options. 
2. You can optimize your display by changing speaker view, resizing, and rearranging your windows.
3. Meetings can be recorded and shared with others.
4. More students will likely be familar with the program and how to use it.
5. Speakers can easily mute and un-mute themselves, and the chat feature can be used if audio issues arise
6. It's free for everyone to use.

Other sharing platforms that can be used include but are not limited to:
  • Skype
  • Team Viewer
  • Google Hangouts
  • Slack
  • Get Started
If you use a video-calling application without screensharing, you can use a screensharing app during your video call. Some screensharing apps include but are not limited to:
  • AnyMeeting
  • Dead Simple Screensharing
  • Discord
If you are unable to share your screen with these or other apps with the Sonday System, contact your administrator or IT department for further assistance.
