This paper examines whether it is possible for web conferencing platforms to support collaborative learning scenarios. Two web conferencing platforms, an open source and a commercial one, are compared and evaluated in two case studies in tertiary education. The final conclusion of this study is that both platforms are capable of supporting collaborative learning activities with great success.
