Define what Google+ is and how to access it with your Maine.edu account.
Identify strategies for using Google+ to create social presence and cognitive engagement in a course.
Briefly identify instructional strategies for integrating this tech with other web based technologies, such as Blackboard and other Google Apps.

Identify at least one instructional strategy for using Google+ in a fully online course.

What are the elements of a successful
Online Learning Community?
We assume there are at least


interaction design principles

inherent in all
quality online courses:
Interaction between participants and the learning management software/website.
Interaction between participants and the course content.
Interaction between participants and other people in the course.
Social presence in online learning environments refers to the degree to which a learner feels personally connected with other students and the instructor in an online learning community.

We assume these elements are critical to online learning:
What's expected is clear at every step.
Assigned activities are relevant contextually and to learning objectives.
Interaction is socially rewarding.
Interaction with others is active and cognitively stimulating.
Self-reflection and peer-feedback is expected.
Feedback is timely and meaningful.
The technology is as easy to use as possible, and help is easy to find.
