Converse and Collaborate in an Unconference

Unhangout is an open-source platform for running large-scale online unconferences. The project uses Google Hangouts to create as many small sessions as needed and help users find others with shared interests. Think of it as a classroom with an infinite number of breakout sessions. Each event has a landing page, called the lobby. When they arrive in the lobby, participants can see who else is there and chat with one another. The hosts can do a video welcome and introduction that gets streamed into the lobby. Participants then break out into smaller sessions (up to 10 people per session) for in-depth conversations, peer-to-peer learning, and collaboration on projects. Unhangout is an MIT Media Lab project, in collaboration with the MacArthur Foundation.
