What is G Suite for Education?

G Suite for Education

The educational institution purchases a Google domain in order for the school to set up Google Apps For Education. This gives all users within the school district a specialized Google account that can be accessed from any internet device. 

Google Apps for Education is a set of communication and collaboration tools that includes gMail, Drive, Classroom, and much more. 
More than 30 million students, teachers, and administrators in schools around the world use Google Apps for Education. 
Many students will use these tools in college and in the workforce — 7 of the 8 Ivy League universities and 5 million businesses use Google Apps. 

Google Apps for Education tools are built for schools. They are: 
  • Collaborative: Fast, easy collaboration is what makes Google Apps unique. The tools offer real-time editing, powerful sharing controls, and seamless compatibility – a great platform for teamwork in the 21st century. 
  • Customizable: Google makes it easy to set dozens of critical security settings and feature options. Set account permissions to meet your school’s needs. For example turn email off for second graders, allow fifth graders to email classmates. 
  • Free: Google Apps for Education for schools is free. This includes 24x7 online, email & telephone support, an online teacher training center, as well as syncing and migration tools.
  • Secure: Google Apps for Education users own their data. 
  • Without ads: There are no ads in Google Apps for Education services and Google does not use student data in Apps for Education services for advertising purposes. 
  • Usable on any device: Whether your school has laptops, Android tablets, iPads, Macbooks, desktop PCs or any other device, Google Apps will work. With Google Apps you can work anytime, anywhere on any device. Offline Gmail and Docs mean you don’t always need internet access.
