Using Microsoft SharedView For Remote Collaboration

A quick guide to Microsoft’s SharedView solution, which aids with PowerPoint presentations, software demos, training sessions and document review.


If you’ve ever had to work with a team remotely, you probably understand how hard it can be to communicate. Microsoft’s SharedView application tries to make it easier to share and collaborate across the Internet. It can help when giving PowerPoint presentations, demonstrating a software application, training students or working on a document.

Microsoft SharedView is actually a part of the Microsoft Connect program, which gives the public access to new or developing software.
