Working with an organisation that specialises in web collaboaration and espouses the many productivity benefits that this can bring. There has been a huge uptake in virtual meetings – however the video aspect is very rarely enabled. In fact when my colleague recently enabled it he was emailed to say "Do you know you have got your camera on?!" as it was so alien.
It has been shown that we trust people and build rapport faster with people when we can see them – but why are we so camera shy? What do you think? And has anyone had success in encouraging video usage ?
