Google Hangout For Chemical Engineer To Enter Calculus II Classroom

Mr. Bentz, Calculus II instructor, suggested that he would like to SKYPE with a Chemical Engineer so that his students could envision what they could be doing in 5-10 years.  While SKYPEing might be a great way for people to communicate it does require yet another username and password.

I suggested that he use Google Hangout as it is part of Google and doesn't require another username and password.

Everything worked perfectly.

We even had a student who was visiting Arizona during the class period.  She joined the hangout which allowed her to not miss the learning experience.

Reactions at the end of the video by the student is certainly positive.

View the process and some of the conversation.
