Google Hangouts

With the activation of Google Hangouts in the oswego.edu domain, we have a powerful new tool to conduct text, voice, phone, or video conference calls. Hangouts may be initiated from a computer, an iOS, or an Android device). Video calls are capped at 15 simultaneous users.

In this session, we will demonstrate how:
- Google Hangouts may be enabled on your computer,
- to initiate and invite others to a hangout,
- to invite people to join a hangout from their phone,
- to join existing hangouts.

Educational uses of Google Hangouts for group discussions, guest lectures, and online office hours will be discussed. We will also discuss how a personal gmail account may be used to schedule and record, livestream, and post Google Hangouts on YouTube.
