Google Hangouts is actually a synchronous program I used as a classroom teacher. My students consistently found that it was easy to use, easy to navigate, and they enjoyed using it across the board. Google Hangouts also has an app on Android and iPhone devices making it easy for students to access in and out of the classroom. This type of software can appeal to multiple types of learners, especially because students can move at their own pace.
