Presenters were stuck.There was not an easy way to share slides.Now there are three good options.Slides are often shared after a meeting or workshop.Slides do not always convey the whole story.

Three ways to record and share a presentation with a Chromebook

1. Google+ Hangout On Air

Anything done in the Hangout On Air will be recorded.Share your screen with the Screenshare app.When finish, watch your video on Youtube.

For all this to work.You need a Google Account attached to Google+, Hangouts, and YouTube.If, your account has all three of these.Go ahead and setup Hangout On Air.Then get login, broadcast, and record from your Chromebook.

There are three or two challenges:

  • First, the recording displays either your webcam video or your shared screen. It means there is no way to show both at one time.
  • Second, your Google Account must use Google+, Hangouts, and YouTube.
