St. George Family History Expos On Air Hangout Highlight Video
Here is a short highlight video of our live Google Plus and Hangouts On Air broadcast from the St. George Family History Expo. This video is just three minutes as I know most people don’t have the time to watch an entire hangout, 60 minutes, of a class.
We were excited to teach the class and equally excited to find out more about the automatic recording of the On Air Session via YouTube and more about what we can do with On Air hangouts and the resulting video.
The editing of the video taught us a lot about what YouTube and Hangouts can and can’t do. I ended up downloading the video from YouTube and using other software to do the work. It was still very nice that Hangouts and YouTube synched up well and provided one less thing to have to worry about during the class.
The echo on parts of the video was not noticeable to the live class but those in the hangout could hear it. It was due to the audio in the classroom being picked up by my mic and creating the echo in the hangout itself but not the room.
As I’ve watched hangouts and the resulting playbacks of them I’ve very rarely played the entire show back. What do you think – is it a good idea to cut the video down to a very short recap or would you rather see the entire class over again – or something in between? If anyone wants to see more please let me know and I’ll send you a link.
