Google Docs is an online application that lets you create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Documents are automatically saved and stored online, so you never have to worry about losing an important document. Sharing a document is as easy as sending a link - no more keeping track of multiple email attachments!
Google Sites is the easiest way to make information accessible to people who need quick, up-to-date access. People can work together on a Site to add file attachments, information from other Google applications like Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube and Picasa. This goes beyond the capabilities of SWIFT but requires higher technical abilities.
Google GMail is Google's web-based email program. As part of Google Apps for Education, email addresses are @edtools.psd401.net. The primary purpose of the GMail account is to facilitate sharing within the other applications. Currently, we do not see this as a replacement for your district email.
Google Calendar is Google's web-based calendar. Your users can organize their schedules and share events, meetings and entire calendars with others. Your organization can also publish calendars and events on the web.
Teacher Dashboard is a new service provided that will allow simple access for teachers to view the work of their students within the Google Apps Environment. This is the primary student in/out box option for most courses within the district.
