Scooped by theo kuechel! | Video for Learning | is an easy to use video meeting system in your browser
theo kuechel's insight:

With you can set up video meeting for up to 8 users such as teachers, students or even classrooms in seconds. All you have to do is choose a name for your 'meeting' room. Click Create  and you immediatley have a link to share and use instantly.  Once you have invited your particpants you can lock the room, or leave it open for up to 8 others to join. There is nothing to install! The possibilities are endless.  

I got the heads up on this from my colleague Leon Cych at  L4LTV - here he is interviewing  Svien Willassen of  about the technology which is based on the WebRTC APIs

Live Video Streaming: Google Hangouts On-Air Now Available for All

From Google's official announcement: "Today we're excited to launch Hangouts On Air to Google+ users worldwide. 


With just a few clicks, you’ll be able to: Broadcast publicly. By checking "Enable Hangouts On Air," you can broadcast your live hangout—from the Google+ stream, to your YouTube channel or your website—to the entire world.


See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.


Record and re-share. Once you're off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it's easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it's over.


Of course, launching millions of live stations takes some doing, so we're rolling out Hangouts On Air gradually, over the next few weeks."

Some very good news, that many of us in education been waiting on for quite a while. Having facility to combine video conferencing with broadcasting and publishing will  really extend what is possible in collaborative learning spaces for schools, colleges and educational projects around the world.
