Google Hangout!!

 

What do I need to do for a Video Consultation!

To meet remotely with a consultant, you will first set up Google Hangouts and then make an appointment:

  • For FAU Students and Faculty Members:  Activate Google Plus on your Google FAU email account.  If you do not have a Google FAU Email account, you can use another Gmail account. If you do not have any sort of Google FAU email or Gmail account.
  • For PBSC Students and Faculty Members: Since PBSC uses Microsoft Outlook as their email platform if you would like a video consult you will need to create a Gmail account if you do not already have one active. Thanks.
