Microsoft Teams – Currently Not Recommended for Remote Demos

I am sorry to report that, in my opinion, Microsoft Teams is not recommended for use in delivering Remote Demos.  Very simply, it currently lacks a set of annotation tools that are needed to highlight specific parts of software screens in demos and, accordingly, to enable presenters to drive sufficient interactivity.

While Teams has some other nice-to-have capabilities for collaboration, the lack of annotation tools renders it not recommended for Remote Demos.

Zoom, GoToMeeting and WebEx all offer excellent sets of annotation tools, including free-hand drawing, text, boxes, circles, highlighters, “laser” pointers, etc.  The use of these tools helps to move Remote Demos from talk-and-click-and-talk-and-click to true conversations.
