Virtual Meetings with Mural

Mural is a web application that supports group collaboration on the web. In this time of working remotely, I think it is a great option to support virtual meetings. Here are three benefits of using Mural to support your next virtual meeting.

  1. Planning your Next Meeting
    Mural is a great tool to layout your ideas – with others – on what to include and not include in a meeting. You can work together at the same time brainstorming meeting objectives, content and time. When done, you can share a link to a “read-only” version of your Mural in advance of the meeting.
  2. Use Mural to Capture and Organize Ideas
    Mural is helpful to capture random ideas from a team during a meeting. Image people are posting their ideas in the shared workspace, then organizing them into themes and building an action plan.
  3. Ready to Go – End of Meeting Product
    The best part of Mural for me is a beautiful, clean document to share with others. Drawings, text and images are easy to read and ready to share. The “lag time” of writing up a report is gone, and the group can move forward with the work

To learn more about Mural, visit and try out the free trial. I think you will really enjoy working with the software.

So will your team!
