Spring 2015 Tech Hangouts OnAir

Pam in our instructional and media technology group shared this announcement about the “Spring 2015 Tech Hangouts OnAir” series. This is a series of helpful technology topics—tips and tricks—for end-users. Hangouts OnAir allow you to view a live stream event via YouTube or Google+. And you have the added benefit of being able to watch a recording of the event once the live event has ended.
