Teachers Guide to Creating Google Plus Collections for Your Class

Share this post:  
Google Plus has recently introduced an interesting new feature called Collections which is basically a curating tool that resembles Pinterest. You can easily create collections where you can organize and group posts by topic. ‘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.’

As a teacher, you can create Collections around specific topics to share with students. Followers of your Collection will be able to see the posts you share right in their Google+ home stream. They can also interact with your posts by liking, resharing and commenting on them. Additionally, as the creator of a Collection, you can control who can view your posts, choose whether ‘people who follow you will automatically follow that Collection’ and customize the look of your Collection’s page the way you want.

Here is how to create a Collection on Google Plus
1- Touch or click Collections 

2- Touch or click YOURS.

4- Type a name for your Collection.
