Comparing Software Used for Telehealth, Teletherapy, or Online Tutoring

By: Blink Session

When considering software for telehealth, theratherapy, or online tutoring, it can hard to compare. To help out, we've created this chart of features and their availability in popular video-conferencing packages. Certainty, there are many more products out there, but we hope this will give you a head start in your search.

One thing you'll notice is how different platforms built specifically for online therapy or teaching different from software designed for meetings. In many cases, its like comparing apples and oranges.
