Hangout Online with ConceptBoard for online lessons/tutorials

Had an idea to run Conceptboard (I've posted about this before) with screen-sharing in a Hangout Online. I got a plan to do this for my A-level chemists throughout the coming year. Maybe AS one week, A2 the next.

All that is involved is starting a Hangout online from Google+ and clicking on the screen-sharing button and choosing the window that has your Conceptboard open. I shared the Hangout with my chemistry circle and Chemistry Community in G+. They can then join the discussion if they want to. I also shared the link to the Conceptboard with the students + the link to my YouTube channel so they could  review it later if they wanted to.

This is my first effort! Will get better with time....
