Created by Google and much like Microsoft 365, G-suite is a collection of tools and cloud storage that teachers may be able to use to create, organise and share content with their students. The G-suite range of tools includes some useful cloud-based, collaborative tools like Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Photos and many others.
G-suite files and tools also integrate well with Aula for easy sharing and collaboration.
This product is marked as ‘managed use’ in the EdTech Ecosystem document, so while the university doesn’t provide licences, staff can use it with students after consideration of GDPR and data security. If you have concerns, speak to your Associate Head of School for Student Experience or equivalent role.
