Chat Tool
This section is to be completed individually
To conduct the chat we used (give the name of the tool you used):
Google Hangouts

It was fairly easy to set up.

Sound quality was good.
Video wasnt laggy.
The onscreen picture was large.
It works within our ODU Gmail framework.

Negatives of using this chat tool were:

We could not view or edit each others documents, so we spent a lot of time
speaking our ideas to each other. This is less efficient than being able to view
onscreen documents. This is my only negative to Google Hangouts.
