online office apps

Considering the last post was about one of the issues that we have with students bring in files now, this post is about online office apps.

There was a posting on a listserve about what schools are using as there email solution and preferred online apps. this has made me start thinking about what we are offering our students and what has evolved since then.

Google apps - education (currently using) There has been a number of posts lately looking at google apps and what they are planing on doing to the documents/spreadsheet/presentation apps, it sounds like we may not recognise there future iterations. But is this a good thing or a bad thing.

Next is the Live@edu, microsofts answer to the online app

Though there is another player in the market, it does not provide email services but I have been starting to play around with what they have,, the word processor app is called and it has some interesting collaboration features.
