Extending Google+ Hangouts to way beyond 10 participants


Published on

At the TESOL Arabia conference March 14, 2014 in Dubai I intend to set up a Hangout live and invite conference participants to join it. Of course anyone in our online PLN is welcome to join us as well.

The live stream will be set up during the presentation, which was proposed as a workshop to be held in a computer lab setting, starting at 1000 GMT.

At that time, as quickly as possible (and if all goes well), the following information will be set up
The URL of the live Hangout ...
The YouTube link to the live stream ...
The embed to the live stream below
The link to the Etherpad chat below that
The embed of the Etherpad chat below that

Once the hangout is in session, the slides will be shown via screen share to the virtual and online audiences.
