Google Apps Team Edition

The following message is from Google, given to you on my behalf as Carleton's Google Campus Ambassador:
You may have already heard of Google Apps Education Edition, our free set of online tools for schools. But, you may not have heard yet that we just made it easier for students to get started using these services without any set-up or hassles for your IT administrator.

With the new Google Apps Team Edition, you and your classmates have a new way to share documents, spreadsheets, presentations and calendar information online. To get started, you just need to sign up with your school email address. After confirming that you belong to your school, it's easy to invite other people and start collaborating.

If you are currently a student who has ever had to work on a group project (and let's face it, who hasn't?), then this is definitely worth checking out. It could be the solution to all the hassle you've faced when trying to keep things straight between your team members, like schedules, project tasks, and so on. Alternatively, if you are part of a student group (like a club, society, or organization), these apps could help you keep all your important info organized in one place.

If you do sign up, share with me how you used the app and whether you found it useful!
