Getting Started with Google Hangouts
This class is available virtually using Zoom meetings! Attendees will access the virtual classroom by clicking the provided link to the Zoom meeting at the bottom of their ticket confirmation. Access is free; participants are able to participate using video, audio, chatting, and through raising their hand. Being on live video or speaking using live audio not required (but encouraged, if you like!). Participants can simply listen, observe, and utilize the chat function to ask questions.
Google Hangouts is a video conferencing tool developed by Google that allows users to collaborate at a distance, instant message, video chat, and share photos, computer screens, and files. Google Hangouts can be accessed online or through mobile apps available for iOS and Android. Chat histories and files are saved online, and they are available to be synced between different devices. For educators & parents, Google Hangouts is a great tool to engage students in collaboration outside of the classroom. It overcomes geographical barriers and provides more opportunities for face-to-face interaction.
