Es fundamental estar actualizado en las opciones que presenta el mercado de herramientas, En este caso, las posibilidades que ofrecen 10 sistemas o plataformas para videoconferencias (webconferencias). Cada una de ellas tiene sus características técnicas, pero es muy IMPORTANTE la consideración de los planes gratuitos (free) con la limitaciones que eso pueda tener, ya que la disposición de equipos, facilidades de acceso y conectividad, son condicionantes en sociedades en las cuales usuarios (instituciones educativas/formación, docentes o participantes) no cuentan con recursos económicos y técnicos para acceder a todas esas maravillas.

The social media analytics compass contains the most essential areas that you need to monitor for your social media channels.

 

It’s not possible to monitor everything across every channel due to limitations of the tool and it’s not essential to monitor everything depending on the business.

 

From this compass pick out what’s important for your business and identify a relevant tool to provide the relevant reports. Let’s look at each section of your compass (Note: you will need to differentiate between paid and unpaid)....

Excited to see how we might be able to set this up in our GAFE space - students already have accounts, so this is a natural fit to facilitate student curation!

Konstantinos Kalemis's curator insight, August 10, 2015 4:58 AM

 

 

Google has just introduced "Collections", for Google+, a new service which allows any Google+ user to group his posts by topic and to create public, shareable collections of his favorite links, articles, videos and images.

 

To use Google Collections, simply go to your G+ profile page and then select "Collections" on the drop down menu appearing on the top left part of the page.

 

"Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections."

 

You can either create new posts containing whatever type of content inside a collection, or assign an existing, published post to a collection you have just created.

 

You can create as many collections as you like.

 

Google+ Collections is available on the web and on Android (iOS coming later).

 

 

My comment: Google+ Collections adds opportunity for creating additional value to G+ users by letting interests drive community engagement. This is a feature that sooner or later any social network will offer. 

 

Free to use.

 

Try it out now: https://plus.google.com/collections/welcome ;
