Google cycle

CU-Boulder is going Google

For students, Google Apps for Education will mean all the messaging and calendaring functionality of Google (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts) and the collaborative apps (Drive [docs], Sites, Talk [chat] and much more) will soon be connected to your CU-Boulder IdentiKey account. Faculty and staff will also get in on the collaborative features of Google, excluding Gmail. This will allow faculty and staff to collaborate with other Google users across the same collaborative apps students get—Drive, Sites, Chat, Groups and more.
