Each month, I hold two events for the higher ed VoiceThread community: a webinar showcasing different ways that college professors are using VoiceThread, and an online office hour that is an opportunity to engage in a less formal conversation about teaching with VoiceThread. Office hours are your chance to ask logistical “how to” questions which I respond to visually using the screenshare feature and engage with other educators about topics related to teaching with VoiceThread.
Beginning tomorrow, I am making a change and using Google+ Hangouts on Air as the platform for my monthly VoiceThread office hour. I’m excited about this change and hope you will be too! Please join in. You will have two options for participating.
Options for Participating in the Google+ Hangout On Air
- Option 1: Participate — Up to 10 people (including me and the VoiceThread team member) will be able to join in on the live, online discussion. The live participants will have the opportunity to participate in video chat (you can choose to disable your video camera and participate through voice only) to ask questions and share ideas. First come first serve!
- To join as a participant, you must add Michelle to your Circles in Google+.
- Then at the scheduled time of the Hangout, you will see a notification in your Google+ feed that the Hangout has begun. Click “Join Hangout.”
- Option 2: View Only — While the Hangout is in progress, a live stream of it will be embedded in the “Hangout” page of my blog. An unlimited number of viewers may watch the live Hangout by visiting that page.
