Google Hangouts Video Conferencing

Google Hangouts Video Conferencing

What do I need to know about Google Hangouts?

  • All participants must have a Gmail account
  • A web cam is recommended but an ‘audio-only’ hangout will work too
  • PHI cannot be shared or discussed
  • Documents and photos can be shared
  • Chat box is available
  • It is a great tool for impromptu remote meetings
  • A wired connection is best and your device (laptop) must be registered on the network (M-Wireless will work but may stall).

How is Dental Informatics (DI) supporting Google Hangouts?

  • DI will install any pluggins that may be required
  • Until you're comfortable with the technology, a test connect is recommended.
  • DI has a webcam that can be borrowed.
  • If problems arise that we cannot fix, we’ll work with campus ITS to resolve the issue.

Dental Informatics can loan you a video conference camera if you are in need of a camera for your conference. That camera can be requested from this form

Other Video Conferencing Options

Blue Jeans Video Conference is also available and well suited to larger group conferences.
