Heard the news? Google released Google+ for education... And Hapara released Google+ for Teacher Dashboard.
1) Google+ Student Activity See recent public student activity on Google+... mouse-over posts & comments
2) Google+ Student Profiles

How to Get Started Want to add these Google+ tools to Teacher Dashboard? To add your Google+ feeds to your Sharing Tab:
Login to your Teacher Dashboard Configuration Console. (Please ask your administrator if you don't have access)
Go to Modules/ Google+
Select the check-box to "Enable viewing of public Google+ activity and profiles" and save
Or, to add Google+ as an entirely new tab, open your Class spreadsheets, add a new column called "Google Plus" and populate all the rows of the column with "yes". Then reload your spreadsheets. Need help? Contact us.
Only public activity and profiles are visible in the Teacher Dashboard feed. Please do not enable Google+ for any users in your domain under the age of 13.
Smart Copy: easily share docs with your class:
Share documents - new or saved - e.g. homework assignments, templates, etc, with your whole class, or a select few students, with just a few clicks...
Custom Sort: sort by students in your class:
Sort the students shown on your dashboard by first name, last name or the groups you have set up. You can even sort in one tab and then apply that sort to all other tabs.
Multi-School Domain Handling
Got multiple schools using one domain? We can partition Teacher Dashboard so teachers see only the relevant classes at their school… Contact us to get set-up.
