Google+ Hangouts

8 Ways to Use Google+ Hangouts for Your Business

Google+ Hangouts are a great way to hold group meetings, interact with customers, interview people and share your expertise.

For public Google+ Hangouts, you’ll want to choose Google+ Hangouts on Air. Google+ Hangouts on Air allow you to have up to 10 hosts in a live hangout that is publicly accessible on Google+, your YouTube channel and your website. You can record hangouts directly to your YouTube channel for future use.

For private Google+ Hangouts, choose Google+ Video Hangouts, which allow you to have up to 10 participants in a video chat that is accessible only to the people invited.

(right now, SCSU pays license for Adobe Connect to do the same)

Use the UberConference app icon to create a conference call number that people can use to call in to the hangout if they’re unable to access the live video stream.




synchronous solution for student to students and faculty to student interactions

Subject: [BLEND-ONLINE] Synchronous solutions..


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…
