Program Description

As Google Plus launched this summer, it was met with more excitement than any new social network has in the past. As technology evolves, can student unions use Google Plus to help increase efficiency, provide quality customer service, and build online communities? The answer is a resounding yes, once you can get access via Google’s invite system. This program explores current and future uses and how it can be used to connect with students. Check out the resources from this Technology Community of Practice online learning program for an enlightening conversation and decide for yourself if Google Plus is worth it.
