- GMail = a web-based mail client with chat facilities with 2Gb of storage,
- Calendar = with collaborative features i.e. perfect for organizing meetings,
- Docs = collaborative online word-processor compatible with Word and the OpenDocument Format,
- Spreadsheet = collaborative online spreadsheet compatible with Excel and the OpenDocument Format.
Let’s hope that the bandwidth the students have at university will be sufficient for them to use these apps!
The students will also have the possibility to read and write emails from their mobile phones using either a customized web interface to Gmail
or a nifty Gmail Java application which Google offers for free. (Crap! The application only works with Blackberry devices!)
I am happy :-)
