Data conferencing, a method of digital communication, enables real-time data sharing and collaboration. This system is frequently applied in e-learning environments, offering participants the opportunity to interact with each other and the shared data concurrently – a potent tool for remote education and work-from-home situations. Data conferencing falls under the umbrella of groupware and computer networking, systems designed to support group work by offering tools and interfaces for users to manage and share information. Scholarly articles and research publications often drive improvements in this field, augmenting its features and potential uses. Beyond education, data conferencing finds use in varied scenarios like business meetings, technical support, and collaborative projects. Software that supports data conferencing includes, but is not limited to, TeamViewer, AnyDesk, and Chrome Remote Desktop.
