This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Google+ can serve as a powerful tool for institutions of higher education. This presentation will explore various assets that allow students and educators to create rich collaborative environments that support learning opportunities. Google+ provides access to an array of Google tools—from standing favorites, such as YouTube and Picasa—to new ones, such as Hangouts and Circles. Google+ can be used to support activities such as collaborative projects, student advisement, course assignments, and more.
