200+ Educational Google+ Communities

In January I compiled a list of education related Google+ communities in this Google document.  I then added another 30 communities in May, bringing the list to over 80 Google+ communities now, which is copied below and ordered by their number of members.

UPDATE May 2015: There are now over 1.4 Million members in over 200 educational Google+ communities listed in the spreadsheet.

UPDATE November 2014: I now have the list of education related Google+ communities in a spreadsheet, with up to date membership numbers.  There are now over 190 communities listed with over 350,000 members.

The new spreadsheet is at: http://bit.ly/edugoogleplus
