Recording Google+ Hangouts

I've tried a few different times with a few different methods to record Google+ Hangouts and never have been happy with the quality of the recording. Yesterday, Google announced a remedy for my problem in the form of making Google+ Hangouts on Air available for everyone. Google+ Hangouts on Air will be rolled-out gradually over the next few weeks to all Google+ users. Google+ Hangouts on Air will record your public Google+ Hangouts and upload those recordings to your YouTube account for you. Google's promotional video for this new feature is embedded below.

Applications for Education
Google+ Hangouts on Air could be an alternative to having experts Skype into your classroom. By using Google+ Hangouts on Air you could partner with multiple classrooms to share in the experience of having a virtual guest speak with your students.
