I have been using Google Hangout for about a month now and I’ve found it to be a great way to collaborate. I personally use FaceTime to communicate with my wife and daughter when I’m away but I really like Google Hangout to communicate with my professional team. If you have a Google+ username/password, you are set up to hangout. Below are some tips to get you started.
What you will need:
- Google’s video/voice plugin
- Webcam and microphone
- Google Hangout apps (this will “dress up” your hangout)
Ok, so you don’t NEED #3 but it is fun to create some comic relief every once in awhile. I also think Google+ is great way to connect a classroom to local and global professionals. If anyone would like to test/play/communicate with me by Google Hangout I will be available using Krexine@gmail.com
