Google Apps for Education at Hampshire

Google Apps for Education is a set of online educational tools made by Google that provide opportunities for collaboration and productivity.

Google Apps for Education offers many features that will benefit the Hampshire community:

  • Unlimited Storage: Google Drive offers unlimited storage for files and folders.
  • Collaborate: When you share a Google Docs file, all your collaborators can view and edit the file simultaneously. While this is currently possible using personal Google accounts, having a Hampshire-specific account will make it much easier to find the people you want to share with. You will no longer have to collect gmail addresses manually from Hampshire collaborators because you will be able to simply use their Hampshire email addresses.
  • Share files: You can easily share any file on your Google Drive with anyone else who has a Google account.
  • Large file transfers: Most email systems (such as the College's) limit the size of file attachments, but Google Drive lets you share files of any size.
  • Web Conferencing: Google Hangouts allows for web conferencing with up to 15 participants.
