Welcome Google+!!

After an extensive pilot of Google+, Bank Street IT is pleased to announce that Google+ is available to faculty, staff, and adminsitration (note that it is not available to SFC students).  Why are we so excited??  Here are some features of Google+:

Video conference (Hangout) with up to 15 people from your computer or smart phone.
Public and private communities.  
Photos and photo album sharing with individuals and groups (check out Google Party Mode)
Schedule events that occur online or face to face.

Since this is just a glimpse of what Google+ has to offer – check out the Google+ channel for inspiration.
Your Google+ profile is not active until you set it up and it is important to ensure privacy of information, so you shuold fully explore and understand Google+ before setting up your profile.
If you get stuck, contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@bankstreet.edu or 212 875 4642.

Lastly, a quick reminder: when sharing content in any space, keep in mind the importance of the Family Education Rights & Privacy Act. 
Whether your course is face-to-face or online, here is information you can’t share without express, written permission from a student:

Everyone at Bank Street (staff, students and faculty) are responsible for upholding the privacy of students.
