How to Join a Hangout p l a n e t a . w i k i s p a c e s . c o m / h a n g o u t # h o w 2 j o i n • 0 7 . 2 0 1 6 •  It helps to have a Gmail address, but it's not necessary. •  Find a quiet space with ample internet signal strength. •  Bring something for show and tell. We love to see tangible folk art, food and lo-fi media: postcards, flyers, guidebooks, posters. •  You need a webcam. It helps to have headphones and microphone. •  Let the hangout facilitator/organizer know of your interest in participating. •  Confirm you are watching on the event page. This adds the hangout to your list of events •  Before your hangout, test the software with a private chat. Install plugins if necessary. •  Bonus points. Learn how to set up the Lower Third screen. •  Use screenshare to show websites or photos already on your computer.

  18. 18. How to Host Hangouts •  When you are signed into Google+ -- https://plus.google.com -- click ‘Hangout' from the lefthand navigation menu •  Now click ‘Hangouts on air' and you will be given the choice of starting one immediately or scheduling a hangout for later (our preference is to schedule the hangouts for later, thus creating an event page that makes it easy to share and thus promote) •  Enable the Q&A (Questions and Answers) app •  When you are ready, click ‘start' to Broadcast hangout and invite participants (individually or by circle) •  At the start and during the hangout, invite viewers to submit questions that will appear in the Q&A •  Afterwards double check the YouTube video and make sure the show notes include a link to the Google+ event page and other relevant links; optional: set license to creative commons attribution so that others can create highlights !  Easy Mistakes: If you choose ‘Event' instead of ‘Hangout' from the lefthand column, the YouTube video link is NOT automatically created. p l a n e t a . w i k i s p a c e s . c o m / h a n g o u t # h o w 2 h o s t • 0 7 . 2 0 1 6
