  • John, 

    I tried using hangouts to share my screen with a new customer.  It worked, but I was dissappointed in that she not only had to sign up for Google +, but also had to add me to her circles, (or I had to add her, forget) in order for her to receive my invitation.

    Great show!

  • I have taught piano online, so I definitely know that would work. Great suggestions and I”m sure there are tons of additional uses including virtual co-op classes or meetings for parents/coaches/leaders
