The collection of tools in the G Suite for Education – formerly known as Google Apps for Education – enables students and teachers to collaborate online in documents, spreadsheets, presentations and websites. This can be on a PC, mac, tablet or phone. Together with Google drive, which offers an infinite amount of storage space in the cloud, VU-Google tools allow you to collaborate with anyone in real time via your browser. Whether it’s an ad hoc study group or a teacher-led assignment in Canvas, the collaboration tools make it easy to do the job.
The G Suite-tools are available for every student of VU Amsterdam, VUmc and ACTA, and for every employee of VU and ACTA. On 24 September, at the VU Teaching Café, participants learned how the G Suite-tools can contribute to their teaching.
