Run a meet-up!  - 
 
If you would like to spontaneously like to run a synchronous online session, you could try tweeting out the URL for your preferred platform below to the #ceetopen  tag to invite discussion or you could contact a few individuals you would like to meet up synchronously with to discuss what you're learning.  Feel free to suggest a time/day and platform and specific topic (or not) if you'd like by posting an invitation in this discussion category. If you're nervous about it, ask yourself why? Is it because you don't know how? and are nervous? How can you learn if you do not try? What instilled in you a feeling to expect perfection in something you don't know? The time to learn is now. Play around with it :-)

Platforms available:

Google Hangout (by invitation to individuals)

BlackBoard Collaborate (unlimited room)

Apart from this course, I currently need to connect 3 library practicum students and will try this out to build a student learning network.  Thank you for all the practical feedback about how to make this work w/ Google+ Tools.

A lot of kids don't know or care about there digital foot print, best efforts at the education rock face don't always translate to home environment.  Bad habits from home come to school.
