With Hangouts and Hangouts on Air you and your students can collaborate through live video learning sessions and chat. Currently, Hangouts allows up to 150 people in a group chat and 25 can video chat! With Hangouts you can’t record the session, but with Hangouts on Air, which is now launched through your YouTube channel, you can set up a live broadcast to a limited or public audience at any date with up to 10 people. This broadcast is recorded and available within minutes after your broadcast on your YouTube channel. Students should be at least 13 years-old to have an account, but my tip is to create a Google class account associated with a class Youtube channel. Below is a slide presentation of full of tips, apps, and resources to help you get your students collaborating on Hangouts on Air.
