Unhangout
"Unhangout is an open source platform for running large scale online un-conference-style events using Google Hangouts to create many simultaneous small sessions. Think of it like a classroom with infinitely many breakout rooms. We provide a text-based chat experience that can support hundreds of participants chatting or watching a live video stream together. When you want to create more opportunity for participation, you can break out into up-to-ten person Google Hangout sessions that create opportunities for peer learning instead of just top-down information transfer that is typical in large scale online education.

Open Source
Unhangout is an open source project. You can find the code in our repository on GitHub. Please let us know if you're interested in hosting your own unhangout events - we would be happy to help you get this set up on your own servers. In some situations, we might be able to host your event on our installation, too.

The Team
Our three person design and development team is based at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA.
