Now, Google+ members can watch and participate in a cooking show – all within a Google+ hangout.
Lee Allison runs his cooking show on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays – all within Google+. So, do Google Hangouts make Google a future player in online education? Well, currently online education vendors use videoconferencing services like WebEx to facilitate this sort of interaction. And Allison is actually looking to WebEx in order to sidestep some of the limitations that Google Hangouts has.
Of course, these limitations exist because, as of now, Google Hangouts weren’t designed for mass online tutorials (Hangouts are currently limited to 10 people at a time). But, I wonder if Allison’s project has made Google wonder if they should?
