Teaching with Google Apps and D2L
Desire2Learn is one of the industry’s fastest growing learning management platforms, offering powerful tools for gradebook management, assessment, and content management. Google Apps is reinventing the ways that businesses and educators think about collaboration, resource sharing, and creative works. This 30 minute presentation will look at how these two industry leaders can support, improve, and even remake teaching and learning at CU-Boulder. This presentation will focus on three powerful ways to begin integrating the new Google Apps for Education service into your D2L class.

Attendees will learn: 
How Google Sites can be used in together with D2L, expanding the customization options for your homepage.
How to manage a more collaborative experience for students with the amazing Google Drive tool.
Looking forward to social sharing, on-the-fly video conferencing, and just-in-time learning with Google+
