I have been wanting to learn how to use Google Hangouts on Air (HOA) for web presentations for awhile now. In my last post, I even shared a short test video so that I could get some initial practice on how it all works. Well, I’ve been quite busy testing the past few days and I feel I have a good handle on many elements for holding a successful broadcast. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be doing my first HOA on September 6th.
I volunteer with my local chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society and my webinar will be for them. The society has a one-of-a-kind newspaper history project to capture history and genealogy information from HBCU student newspapers. During the session, I’ll demonstrate the indexing process and provide details on how you can contribute towards this important effort.
Consider yourself invited! September 6th, 2014 from 10-11am CST is when you can find us online for the broadcast.
Details are available on the society blog at http://www.aahgsnashville.org/hbcu-indexing-workshop/.
