Google Hangout

Google Hangouts is a relatively new tool for the DEL Program. It is a social networking tool which allows students/faculty to collaborate quickly and easily. Hangouts gives users the ability to meet, share screens, watch videos, chat, share documents, and view presentations. The biggest limitation to Hangouts is participation is limited to 10 active participants, including the initiator. Also, every participant must have an active Gmail account. This tool could be used for smaller course meetings, virtual office hours, and group project meetings.
