A ton of Google+ video tutorials to help you out

I’ve created quite a few video tutorials on Google+ over the past few months (along with a handful about other services such as Facebook and Twitter), so decided to put them all in one place for easy access — ABrighterWeb.com!

Of the 65 tutorials available at launch, nearly half are focused on Google+.  If you have questions about any aspect of Google+, hopefully you can find the answer there.  If not, please feel free to leave a comment below or contact us and we’ll certainly help you out.

We’re excited about the launch of this site, and hope that you find it to be a valuable tool.  Let us know what you think of it, and please offer suggestions for additional tutorials that we should add to the archive.  Thanks!

Some colleges will be using Google+ this fall

Wow, that was fast!  According to a story on GOOD, some universities will be using Google+ in the classroom starting this fall.

Stanford’s B.J. Fogg, director of the university’s Persuasive Technology Lab, says he’ll be using Google+ to foster collaboration on research projects. “Probably every project in my lab will have its own circle,” he said. Likewise, Lehigh University journalism professor Jeremy Littau wrote on his blog that he plans to require every student to sign up for Google+. “I’m already planning on holding Hangout office hours this fall for students, where they can get on and ask questions about class material,” he says. I can certainly imagine this kind of innovation happening at the K-12 level as well.

I expected we’d see this kind of use of Google+ eventually, but not that quickly.  Hangouts in particular could be very valuable in educational settings (study groups, etc).

Do you think Google+ will become more common in classrooms over the next few years?
