Google has revealed a third of UK colleges and universities are using Google Apps for Education.
The company’s customers include the University of York, the University of Sheffield, the University of St Andrews, Bristol University, Ealing Hammersmith & West London College and Coleg Cambria.
The free cloud-based apps – which include services such as Gmail, Drive (Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentations), Calendar, Talk, Sites and Groups – are designed to offer staff and students a more creative and collaborative working environment.
Speaking at Google’s Central St Giles office by Tottenham Court Road in London, Liz Sproat, Google’s head of education for EMEA, said: “We’re also seeing an increasing amount of usage in the schools community. Historically our focus has been very much around higher education but increasingly whole schools and whole chains of schools are also moving to Google Apps.”
