Hi Mary Beth,
I didn't because we want to record and archive our sessions and the On Air option only does a live recording and their permissions are only for 18 yrs. and older for the On Air feature. I wasn't comfortable with making the feed live because of those reasons. I am thinking of offering Hangouts sometimes during the summer that we don't record for our summer reading program and hoping some classroom teachers also jump in during 2 or 3 scheduled times.

Hi Karen,

I'm sorry I took so long to respond. The Hangout on Air option is pretty cool. It might require that your students have signed releases since it is usually public on YouTube. Hangouts also allow for collaborative features similar to Elluminate, which is neat. Since you left this comment, have you give it a try?

I have always wondered about google hangout and think it such a great idea for connecting students and mentors. Thanks for the information!

Hi Mary Beth,
Our students recently created webinars to teach younger students about Cyber Safety. We used Elluminate to connect for our first session (friend requests) and are researching whether to continue with Elluminate or switch to using Google Hangouts for our remaining two sessions. The archive viewing with Elluminate is a little rough and I have heard that Google Hangout archives can be sent straight to YouTube which is a nice feature!!! Thanks for posting. It was timely as we work to decide which will work. Feel free to email me if you would like to visit (virtually or in person) when we present our next session!
