I can't get the sound- probably my computer. I'm bummed though, I was so looking forward to hearing about how everything is progressing! I love that you've used vlogs for your weekly posts. Very creative and a nice break from so much reading. I'll check back in tomorrow and see if I can make the video work. :)
I have no sound either?
Natalie, ditto Lexie and Prof. Jeff - no sound. :(
If it makes you feel better I installed and uninstalled Adobe Flash Player like 6 times. I gave up ... for now.
Lexie, Jeff, & Sheila,
I just fixed the video. There was an issue with the files. I have been fighting with it for days. Thanks for the head's up!
I'm glad you were able to battle the sound issue! Great vlog, it's just too bad that there are glitches with Hangout as well. Thanks for sharing your challenges! I really hope that it'll pan out more smoothly with just the communities. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to get everyone on board, create accounts and be active participants... Good Luck!
Okay, not sure this is an insurmountable issue. Here is what you do. Get everyone you want in the community to search for the Google Plus Community you create (you must ensure that is is "searchable") and request to join with the Google account they will use. You then add everyone in the community to a specific SPA Caring Adults Circle in Google Plus. This way they are easily searchable in Hangouts. I collaborate with people across the globe with hangouts and haven't had the global contacts be an issue. . .hope this helps.
