Google has launched a new platform called Helpouts which integrates with Google+ Hangouts, and allows people to learn from a wide variety of experts.
There are eight different categories to choose from:
- Art Music
- Computers Electronics
- Education Careers
- Fashion Beauty
- Fitness Nutrition
- Home Garden
Helpouts range in pricing from free to upwards of $150, and Google is offering a 100% money back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied.
Because they take place in Hangouts, users can also share their screen, documents and more.
Help might be a quick answer to a problem you’re having right now, like how to fix your garage door, or how to remove a computer virus; or it might be guidance completing a project, like building a deck. It might be learning a new skill, like how to speak conversational French or how to draw cartoons; or it might be general advice on how to improve your fitness or your writing (I could use this right now).
For those interested in helping out, it’s currently invitation only, but Google says it will grow over time.
