“I don’t think we can talk about digital transformation without thinking about cultural transformation, because I believe they go hand in hand.”

Even with the release of a GROUP video call now for free (versus only between two parties), Google Hangout still might be the way to go:

Subject: [BLEND-ONLINE] Synchronous solutions..

Hello,

I am leading a project group that is looking into a synchronous solution for student to students and faculty to student interactions. We recently started to use Canvas for our LMS and slowly moving away from Bb. Many of the faculty were using Wimba for synchronous classes and moments. Now faculty and students are using a combination of Big Blue Button, Webex, Skype and Google hangouts. We are trying to find a single solution for this. Can anyone let me know what they are using at their school for synchronous classes or moments, student group work and virtual office hours. Thanks so much for your time…

Tina
