Google + is now being used for education!!!!!

by on November 14, 2011

Hi Guys,

After doing more snooping into the possibilities of Google + as a solution to the brief we were given I think that I’ve hit the jackpot.  Google+ is becoming increasingly popular with universities as an educational tool.  A number  of colleges are starting to use Google+ as a teaching aid, especially the “Hangout”, which is the video chat function of Google+.  As you can see there is loads being written about this and it seems like a really cutting-edge tool to be used in education and since it can be accessed via any computer/smartphone it would be fairly cost-effective.  The assignment brief also says we need to start looking at literature review, so formal research papers, just so that we stay on track. Sorry I couldn’t make Thursdays’s meeting.
