Webinar Wednesday – G Suite Hangouts

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 — 1:30pm
until 2:30 pm
RSVP by Tuesday, May 15

Join me to learn about a collaborative feature that is part of your Bates G Suite account. G Suite Hangouts is an instant messaging platform that allows you to have one-to-one and group text chats with other members of the Bates College Community or with individuals who also have a G Suite account. Maybe you have a colleague that is on the phone and you need to communicate some important information to them, but don’t want to interrupt them; or maybe you have a quick question you want to ask someone, but it may not warrant a phone call or email message – send them an instant message with G Suite Hangouts.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to Access and Use G Suite Hangouts
  • About Some of the Additional Collaboration Features That are Available to You With G Suite Hangouts
  • About the Settings, You Can Change and Customize
  • Some Tips and Tricks
  • We Will Also Discuss the Differences Between G Suite Hangouts and the Zoom Video Conferencing Platform
