Google geht in die Offensive bei Unis und Schulen

Kommentieren 31. July 2008

Google scheint seine Initiativen zu verstärken, die eigenen Applikations in Universitäten und Schulen zu etablieren. Man scheint da offenbar einen Markt entdeckt zu haben, nachdem die education-Version der google apps bisher scheinbar nur ein kleinerer Stein in der Produktpalette war. Auch mit Knol hat man ja bereits in Richtung Bildungssektor geschossen, so dass man gespannt sein kann, was da noch kommen mag.

Und ich habe wieder was gelernt: Anscheinend sprechen wir inzwischen von “cloud computing” – web 3.0 ick hör Dir trappsen 😉

Gefunden bei und zitiert vom official google-Blog:

Google Apps is rapidly gaining momentum in education. We now have more than a million people on campuses worldwide actively using Google’s suite of email, calendar and docs to share information and study. This makes perfect sense. Schools have always been a proving ground for innovative ideas. And as we prepare for the new school year, we are happy to welcome more than a dozen universities across the U.S., joining the thousands of other schools that have already embraced cloud computing in education. Here are the new additions:

  • Collin County Community College District
  • Francis Marion University
  • George Washington University
  • Indiana University
  • Kean University
  • Kent State University
  • Kishwaukee College
  • Loyola Marymount University
  • Montgomery County Community College
  • New Jersey Institute of Technology
  • University of Florida
  • University of San Diego
  • University of Virginia

This is really just the beginning. As we continue working to make it easier to communicate and collaborate online, we are going to meet with some of the top technology experts — the students themselves. For the entire month of September, we are heading “App to School” by embarking on a cross-country bus tour to visit campuses, listen to students and learn more about how cloud computing is helping education.
