The OU has for some time now been offering Google Apps to our current students on an opt-in basis, initially to offer a replacement to the OpenText FirstClass service we used to run, and to complement students’ personal email provision. We now have in excess of 24,000 students using our Google Apps domain via single-sign-on. Of more interest to our learning systems and curriculum teams however was the potential to adopt some of the other tools – such as Docs and Sites. This presentation will cover early adoption of Google Apps ‘out-of-the-box’ for curriculum use in some of our popular modules as well as developments to integrate better with our VLE in Moodle.
