Going Google at Portland State University
PSU has migrated all 30,000+ student emails to Google
They found cost savings, almost no student calls for support after migration, grassroots heavyy adoption of other collaboration apps
Google groups for courses. Professors use to share documents and communicate with students. Mostly one-way use of groups at this time. Anticipate collaborative student work to occur in Docs.
Communication across campus community was essential.
"Google Guides" type group was essential.
Google was a very responsive partner/vendor.
