- [Instructor] In this course, we're going to take a look at how to use Google Apps in Education to improve productivity, create opportunities for collaboration, and increase student engagement. I'm going to walk you through some of the ways I use Google Apps as a teacher to save time, and keep myself and my students organized. This course is designed for educators who teach or support students at any age level, any subject matter, in any setting. It's perfect for Teachers, Instructors, Education students, and School administrators.
Before you begin incorporating any of the information in the course into your practice, you will need to create a Gmail account through Google. The free personal Gmail account, or a school or work provided Gmail account, will work for our purposes. If you need to create a new account, you can do this by going to Google.com, and then clicking on Gmail in the top right corner. Follow the simple steps to create your free account, which will give you access to all of the other apps discussed in this video series.
Google is constantly changing to create a better experience for users, so when you go to use the apps covered in this video, they might look a little different than they do in the tutorials. With an entire collection of applications perfect for students and educators, Google Apps can help save you time and hassle. Let's get started.
