In preparation for our training, I invite you to view the following clips as they could be helpful in giving an overview of this tool.
- “What is cloud computing?” (2:32) is produced by CNN and gives a good overview of this new paradigm in computing where very little data or none at all is saved on the local computer. Rather, data is housed securely somewhere in the Internet (represented by a cloud) and can be accessed at any time from anywhere.
- The second clip (2:00) is a quick tour of Google Apps.
- Google Docs (2:50) is the third clip and explains the advantages of using Google Docs over the traditional practice of emailing documents back and forth.
- The final clip (10:37) describes Google Apps as a system wide tool for use in an educational environment.
