Over the last six months, we've been working with the Google+ Hangouts team to experiment with using hangouts to add another dimension of communication and social to the Coursera student experience. At I/O last month, I got the opportunity to share those experiments and talk about what we've learnt from them. It wasn't a very technical talk at all, as we've been learning more about humans than machines, but that made it a fun talk to give, too. I look forward to doing more experiments with hangouts and other forms of communication in the future. Stay tuned!
