Description

Google Hangouts is a browser based video chat application tied to the Google+ platform. Google Hangouts allow you and up to 9 of your students or colleagues to participate in a dynamic and engaging live interaction with video, voice, and some really clever instructional applications.  Simply start a hangout by adding your students' NAU email addresses. An email message is then sent to your students' NAU gmail account. Your students click onto the invitation, and - voila - you have started a Google Hangout.
