Google Hangout 1: Welcome to the course
On this course, learners will have the opportunity to ask the educators particular questions through live events called Google+ Hangouts on Air. These events also allow the educator to recap over the previous week.
This Google Hangout has now taken place. You can watch the recording on YouTube.
This is the first of our two Google Hangouts. We will discuss the content of the course so far and the developments in the ‘What’s in a name?’ story.
Our special guest will be Chris Atkins from the ‘What’s in a name?’ story.
Each Google Hangout will be streamed live on YouTube and Google+ Hangouts for approximately 40 minutes, where you can follow it live. Google users can register their interest to receive an update when the event is about to start. We will also send a reminder email a day before the event.
We encourage you to ask questions and comment on the week’s topics during the Hangouts, and we’ll select the most popular ones to respond to during the Hangout.
There are three ways you can do this:
You will be able to send questions and comments before and during the event by submitting them in the Google Hangout Q&A chat window (if you have a Google account).
You can leave your question or comments on this step in advance. We hope to include some of these in the discussion - please ‘like’ the comments you find interesting to help us choose the most useful ones
What happens if I can’t watch the live Hangout?
Don’t worry! Real time participation is not a mandatory part of this course, but it is fun and we think you’d get a lot out of it. A recording of the discussion will be made available after the live event finishes. You will be able to access the recorded video after the event on YouTube.
Will loading the Hangout mean I appear on camera?
No, you will just watch the live stream like any other video (though Google users can submit comments via the interface).
Is a Google account required to view the Hangout?
No, you can watch the Hangout without logging in to Google.
