Google Hangout from September 2015


‘Hangouts’ was recently presented to the HDESD’s Special Programs department at their half-day in service. Rachel Wente-Chaney, Chief Information Office for HDESD, presented Google Hangouts which is similar to Skype. Staff got a chance to download the app, and invite their co-workers to join in on a ‘hangout’ session. Here are some of the reasons why Google Hangout can be a benefit:

  • It’s a great tool for collaboration!
  • It’s easy to use and flexible.
  • It’s cost-efficient (free).
  • It builds your professional learning community.
  • It’s like skype, but so much better!
