Submission + - USC Deploys Google Apps For Students

apok04 writes: A new partnership between USC and Google will bring convenience and new opportunities for online collaboration to USC students. The tools provided to students include Gmail (2 GB), integrated chat and applications for calendaring and document and spreadsheet production. The program is called Google Apps For Education, and is hosted by Google.

Is Google making a play for an environment traditionally controlled by Microsoft? Maybe. Are there privacy concerns since the service is being controlled by an outside organization? Of course.

But as a USC grad student in engineering (among the first to try these out), I must say I am glad to have platform-independent collaboration tools for use in my group projects.
