As we searched for a replacement for our current email system, it quickly became clear that moving our mail to Google Apps for Education was the solution we had been looking for. Google Apps for Education provides a feature rich suite of communication and collaboration services that are available “anytime, anywhere” through a reliable and safe platform. Additionally, our students and many of our faculty and staff are already successfully using Google Apps for Education for collaborative learning and online file storage. Considering the above, the decision to move our mail services was a natural choice, rounding out a powerful suite of cloud based tools. Not to mention, Google offers these services free to schools.
Google Apps for Education will provide us with improved communication and collaboration tools, increased mail storage, online file storage, lower costs, and with Google as a partner, the resources and means to implement new technologies faster. In addition, these services are available from any internet connected device – computer, ipad, phones – twenty-four hours a day.
