Google Apps for Education Is Leading the Way to a Cloud-Based Campus [#Infographic] | EdTech Magazine

Google Apps for Education Is Leading the Way to a Cloud-Based Campus [#Infographic] | EdTech Magazine:

 "Software as a service has been one of the key disruptors of technology in higher education. The ability to move applications and services into the cloud frees up IT staff to focus on infrastructure and classroom technology. In the case of Google Apps for Education, it also relieves some of the pressure on colleges’ budgets.

Available at no cost to students and faculty, Google Apps includes cloud email, storage, hosting, word processing and collaboration tools. Previously, colleges were forced to invest millions in these services and struggled to modernize outdated technology, not to mention maintain email servers and data centers. Microsoft has followed suit with their Office 365 solution, and the cloud revolution is in full swing on campuses."
