From holding online classes with Google+ to building a weekly newspaper with Google Sites, faculty and students are finding innovative uses for the Google Apps for Education suite at Case Western Reserve University. The collection of collaboration and productivity tools—available to all university students, staff and faculty—has grown to include more than 40 apps, all of which are accessible via an Internet connection and a web browser.
In this video produced by Information Technology Services’ MediaVision, faculty and students discuss how they are putting Google Apps to work inside and outside of the classroom. The video served as the introduction to the Google Fall Harvest in the Kelvin Smith Library earlier this month, which featured faculty members’ stories of Google Apps in their teaching and demonstrations of the wide array of Google offerings available to the university.
