Google apps spreading into universities
August 20, 2007
Google are doing really well with their push to get universities to sign up to their free Google Apps Education Edition.
The latest news is that the universities of North Carolina Greensboro, Clemson, Texas San Antonio, Kennesaw State and Arkansas State have signed up for the free service, which comprises of email, messaging, online calendars, word processing, and spreadsheets.
They join other universities like the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Trinity College in Dublin and Nihon University in Tokyo, who already use Google’s applications.
This really is one in the eye for Microsoft. Supplying universities with software has been a lucrative flow of money for Microsoft for years, if Google keep eating away at this Microsoft will notice the drop in profits!
