Google+ Hangouts on Air
Our study abroad group visited Harlaxton College in the UK this year. We decided it’d be nice to have a video chat with them for a Q&A session. Skype would have worked fine, but I’d recently sat in on a really cool interview session with Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame on Google+, and thought that’d be a great thing to use for ourselves.
Google+ Hangouts on Air allow you to broadcast your video chat live on YouTube. We had a moderator sitting on the YouTube page taking questions from visitors that way. It also archived the video for us so that we could use it to promote our study abroad program in the future.
