As we dive into Google Apps for Education, it's important to take the time to understand what Google Apps for education is, and what's it's not. Google Apps for education is nothing different than the regular Google Apps account. The biggest difference is that, once Google has certified you as an educational institution, you get the full power of Google Apps, including storage space for all of your users. At no cost to you. This is one way Google likes to give back to the educational community. The Google Apps are simply a collection of applications that all integrate together that allow us to streamline the productivity of our work flow.
This includes Google Calendar. Google Mail, known as GMail. Google Drive and Google Docs. Google Sites and even Google's socially media platform, Google Plus. As we move through this course, we'll talk about each one of these elements individually. And how we as educators can use Google Apps to both help our students learn more, as well as help us save time in the planning and delivery of our lessons.
