The big new thing in social media over the last year was Google+. Google+ is both a brand new social network, and a company wide initiative to add social features to Google products.
In this session Martin Hamilton (Head of Internet Services at Loughborough University) will take a look at key Google+ features from an institutional perspective. There will be a particular emphasis on potential applications in training and IT support/assistance. Martin will also look more broadly at use of Google+ in teaching and learning, and integration with the wider set of Google services.
Delegates will have the opportunity to try out Google+ for themselves. You will need a personal or institutional Google account (a personal Gmail account is fine for this), and an Internet capable device. Google+ apps are available for Apple and Android devices, or you can use any web browser. The session will be held in a PC lab, and there will be plenty of time for a hands-on with Google+.
