Intro Breeze is a rich web communication system that lets you reach your audience anytime with engaging multimedia content. And, because Breeze is deployed using Macromedia Flash Player, already installed on more than 98% of browsers worldwide, your audience can join your Breeze online meetings, training courses and on- demand presentations instantly. I currently use Breeze in several of my courses to reach students when I am traveling or just want to produce a lecture I can use several times without repeating the content over and over again.
