I came across a couple of useful things today relating to Google Apps.
The first is a student perspective on the ease of use of Google Apps for her course. She is very articulate and succinct in her responses, and shows a mastery of her digital environment.
If school children are demonstrating this level of knowledge, understanding and proficiency in using Google Apps then it seems out of step to be providing anything proprietory at university, particularly if it offers less functionality and required students then learning an unfamiliar environment that they won’t use again after graduation.
A teacher also talks about her use of Google Apps for her classes.
As a supplement to the above, there are some resources available at Google Tools for Educators including links to some useful videos.
