Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of Google Plus as a project-based learning platform in higher education. Based on previous research, self-regulated learning ability, teaching presence, and perceived interaction of learners were chosen as predictors of learning outcomes. The results of the study are as follows: first, perceived interaction significantly predicted the learning outcome. Second, perceived interaction had a mediating effect on the relationship between self-regulated learning and learning outcome. Third, perceived interaction also had a mediating effect on the relationship between teaching presence and learning outcome. Discussions and future research directions on using Google Plus as a project-based learning platform for higher education context were suggested.
