MALET Orientation

Getting started for new MALET students


You should be prepared to use video-chat tools to communicate with your advisers and colleagues in the program – Google Hangouts are a frequently used choice (a Gmail and Google+ account are required to use Hangouts).

The video overview below provides an introduction to the features of Google Hangouts. You can also find more information and instructions at: or there are many video tutorials on Youtube.

To get started you will need the following equipment:

  • A webcam (often built into laptops)
  • Headset or Headset/Microphone for your computer


  •  A hangout “app” if you have an iPad, iphone or an Android tablet  or phone (with a built in camera).
