Google Apps: In the Cloud

On Friday, for our High School teachers, I’ll be doing an advertisement for Google Apps, sharing the advantages to using such a service. We have accounts created for all our High School students and teachers and have several classes using it regularly.

Below is a Youtube video that does a good job of explaining the cloud computing concept and how it relates to Google Apps.

I’m excited about the possibilities recently made available through the new Google Apps Marketplace. This service allows us to add additional tools to our Google Apps account that our users can access without signing up for any additional services. For example, through their Google Apps accounts, our students can access all the Aviary tools. Their files from the Aviary site will be stored in their Google Apps account.
