Using Google Hangout for Student Services

Wow!  It's hard to believe how fast the year is going.  Autumn is already upon us!  Turning back the clocks will be coming up on November 1, 2015.  We all look forward to that extra hour of sleep!

Fall is my favorite season and before we know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here.  Until the first snow flies I hope you all enjoy the beautiful colors of this season.

A few weeks ago I had mention something about a webinar the Jessica Noble had hosted.  The title of it was Using Google Communities and Hangouts for Networking and Interaction (September 2015).
If you click on this link you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to access the webinar. Google communities and hangouts are easy to set up and access.  I do want to tell you that ZOOM, the application ESSDACK uses is very similar.  I don't say this to discourage you from Google because I still use both of them within my position.  I really like the community part of it because it's a great way to collaborate with people in my profession.  It could also be a way for students to collaborate.  As you watch the webinar and learn more about the technology you could be asking yourself how could my staff and students benefit from using it.  My philosophy is, if it's good for students then go for it!
