Telecollaboration refers to a set of software technologies that enable the integration and extension of personal desktop collaboration into high definition videoconferencing solutions.

Unlike pure high definition video conferencing systems or telepresence solutions, a telecollaborative high definition video conferencing environment is supplemented by spontaneously shared personal content thereby putting a remote meeting's emphasis not only on face to face communication but concurrently on collaboration. Telecollaboration allows users to share and edit documents, files and applications in real-time synchronously. The development of new technologies like HTML5 and WebRTC will enable software development companies to develop audio, video and document collaboration systems. Telecollaboration can be used across the industry verticals for productivity, training and other functions. Education, training and e-commerce industry will benefit tremendously by adopting live audio, video and document collaboration.
