Going Google at the University
The University of the Sciences has just rolled out Google Apps for Education. This optional resource gives all faculty, students and staff a state-of-the-art communication and collaboration platform to supplement our existing e-learning infrastructure. We now have the ability to share and collaboratively edit documents compatible with Word, Excel and PowerPoint. We can create unlimited Wiki websites (Sites in Google parlance) and stream videos from our own private branded YouTube-like site. All content resides in the University's protected domain and will require a login and password to view.
The following presentation links to 3 short Google videos and highlights where Google Apps fits within our e-learning platform, who will use it, what it is used for, and why we decided to deploy it.
