Chee to me 5 June:

there are some products and technology where the big questions is whether it's going to catch on. that's not the question for rich video communication.

the question for video is only "when" and what can we do to help accelerate it.

Hi +Mike Downes not sure if you want more tips or more findings...but here's what I came up with: 5 June 2013

We use hangouts as a form out educational outreach. Since some of our hangouts specifically target children we try to incorporate a more formal, curriculum based hangouts. When we have incorporated science (STEM) or reading into a hangout we try to put lesson plans or ISBN/author info in order to prep our audience. For the Hangout about Ivan the gorilla, we were able to capitalize on the timing of the book,The One and Only Ivan, recently being awarded the prestigious Newbery medal, a literary award given by the Association for Library Service to Children.

https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/clguniiu9fq06baai7odcq62t58 .. Ivan the Gorilla: Beyond the Book Hangout On Air

In other hangouts, we try to keep it loose (panda and parrot), where we share interpretive content and answer some questions. The speaker has to be on their A-game as we’ve received a few “offbeat” on air questions such as “how many teeth do baby red pandas have.” So it’s good to prepare and have experience speaking with children. And when it doubt, have someone in the office look it up online!

We always try to have a live animal demo. When that’s not available we incorporate video/live cam/photos and props to break up the talking heads.

We’ve had our technical set-backs. There has been a technical glitch on every single Zoo Atlanta Hangout On Air, from the blue screen of death to someone walking off with the laptop for another meeting right before broadcast. We’ve seen it all!

If you watch me as the moderator I’m usually running around. It’s good to have someone else to help you with the tech that has a G+ account! Mostly it takes practice, but here are some good basics. Do not rely on WiFi; use the fastest network connection you can. We had to roll out the largest cord ever to broadcast the red panda hangout. Use headsets and be sure that the speakers are in other rooms. On our first hangout I was sitting right next to the speaker as a moderator and had to throw off my headphones due to the echo!

When it doubt, start over. Yep the IT Crowd is right, “Did you try turning off and turning on your computer?” The last Hangout on Air, the embed code wasn’t on the screen. So we restarted and it showed up.

Be sure you test and test again. This includes your guests! Make sure everyone is on the call with the best audio/lighting they can muster. Even try a Hangout On Air before broadcast just for a minute to make sure all your YouTube account is properly linked up. You can always delete it!

Speaking of lighting…now our office is not the best, but make sure there is not a window behind you so you’re not a talking shadow.

And remember, go with the flow! Acknowledge a goof and move on. You can always edit in YouTube…

I'm quite into the phrase, BackPack Journalism that's repeated many times in this title. On page five, there's a tidy reference to Storytelling versus Visuals.

Author could easily be talking about Hangouts and the pseudo need for HD ie no matter how great the visuals are, it will never make up for a poor story ..
