Introduction to NIH Web Collaboration

Travel time and geographical locations are obstacles that are easily overcome with CIT's Web Collaboration Services. Some of the ways the NIH community uses Web Collaboration are to hold ad hoc virtual meetings, to rapidly train users through elearning lectures and online quizzes, and to allow teleworkers to stay in touch.
