If you’re looking for a way to chat with others that doesn’t require an installation of software…..we’ve found something pretty fabulous for you! Appear.in is a one click video tool. Yes, that’s right….one click! This website allows users to create a video chat room for up to 8 people all for free! (always our favorite)
Follow these simple steps to get started:
The most important thing to remember is that you’ll need to use the Google Chrome browser. (It’s also a free download here.)
1. Navigate to the website: appear.in
2. Type the name of what you would like your room to be called in the box on the screen. If you can’t think of a name, one is created for you.
3. Click: “Create”
4. You’re in! Share the link to the room with others through your email, Facebook, or other social network.
Appear.in even allows users to to share their desktop! This is a fabulous teaching tool! If you choose to “follow” a room, a small icon will be placed at the top of your browser so you always know when others are ready to chat.
If you really want to get fancy, you can claim the room name as your own. We’ve created one here. Would you like to meet the women behind the Fabulous Friday Find?! Click the link and visit us! https://appear.in/fabulousfridayfind
There are a few great advantages for claiming the room as your own. The URL will always be the same so your friends and students know where to go. Also, when chatting with other content experts and classrooms, it’s easy to find them….no more having to download software and then create an account and make sure the other person can find you. All you have to do is send them the link!
Let us know below in the comments what rooms you decide to appear.in! We’ll come check them out. Have a Fabulous Friday!
