Professors See Google+ as More Useful for Classes Than Facebook, Twitter, Christian News

As a teaching tool, [Google+] intrigues me. I’m already planning on holding Hangout office hours this fall for students, where they can get on and ask questions about class material. And because it’s multi-user, others can hang out in the lounge and listen. Sometimes I go over the same stuff with multiple students in multiple meetings; this could streamline that process,” said Littau.

I might pilot Google plus in the classroom as well. I like the idea of not having to "friend" my students on facebook. Hope to see more improvements to Google+ this summer so it is ready for implementation in my classroom this Fall.
