Technology can be wonderful when it works. From the outset, I knew that Google+ would be an exciting way for our cohort to meet face-to-face online. This is why I sent everyone an invitation to use it in August.
The problem with Google+ is that not many people know of its powerful conferencing capabilities. With Google+, you can live video chat with up to 10 people at the same time for free. You can’t do that with Facebook or any other platform currently. Because Google+ is a pilot project, you must have an invitation to use it. Not everyone I emailed the Google+ invitations to took me up on the offer to use it. I wasn’t offended, but that creates the problem of being able to video chat with other members of the cohort.
