Description

Google Hangout is the premium free webcasting software available. It is important that all organisations and individuals master it. The software is updated regularly, so this tutorial is valid as at March 2014. If things change drastically I will attempt to update it.

Google Hangout Tutorial by Michael de Groot @stayingaliveuk © ! Google Hangout is a high quality webcasting software, provided free by google. It allows the host to broadcast their video together with up to 9 participants, who can also stream their video, all done via webcams. ! Most modern computers have built-in webcams, although a separate webcam will work also. ! You can also join the hangout with audio only. ! In order to participate in the hangout there are a few essential requirements: ! 1. Processor Minimum Requirements: Any 2 GHz dual core processor or greater. 2. Bandwidth: • For 1:1 connections you need at least 1 mbps/1 mbps (upload/download) • For group video connectivity you need 1 mbps/2 mbps (upload/download) ! 3. It is recommended to have a Google Plus (G+) account. If you have Gmail, then you will already have an account set-up. You may have to activate it. 4. Google Hangout Plugin: http://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangoutplugin This is a one-time plugin, which needs to be installed on your computer in order that the hangout web software can access your video/audio on your computer. ! The tutorial is a guide for getting started. The software is fairly simple to use, although it may take you a few practice attempts, to follow the procedure. Once you have mastered it, it will be quite simple for you to operate. ! I have found the software very reliable and I have never experienced any problems. I have been impressed with it’s high quality. ! The software allows the host, as well as the participants to: ! • Share specific applications, that are open on their desktop • Share videos from YouTube • Present using Slideshare, an online presentation software ! I wish you success and if you have any queries please feel free to get in touch. ! ! ! Michael de Groot ! Staying Alive UK Ltd March 2014
