Google recently released Google Higher Ed apps, and the University has now turned them on for use. If you haven't noticed their availability yet, take a peek. Click on the "More" button on top of your Google email account. If you have any questions, OIT's 1-Help is available to help.
Here are three apps we discovered that may make life just a bit easier:
Unlike web page favorites that are stored on your computer, Google Bookmarks are stored in the cloud like the rest of your Google Account and can be accessed from any internet accessible computer.
Google Reader allows you to subscribe to your favorite websites, and new content comes to your Google Reader when it's posted, so you don't need to visit individual sites.
This is a handy way to upload photos for an assignment or project you're working on. You can choose whether the photos are public or only available to select people.
Check out these apps when you have a chance, and if you find one that's particularly helpful, email us, and we'll publish your tip in a future issue of News & Notes.
