Google’s blog recently announced that Unitec, my old tech (then known as Carrington Technical Institute), deployed Google Apps to its students across four campuses. When I was there in the mid-eighties there was no Google, let alone web applications, and a few thousand students shared one campus. The bleeding edge of design IT technology were a few copies of AutoCAD 2.something and, just before I left, a Macintosh. The future is wonderful, and we live in it!
Unitec's 23,000 students [from more than 80 countries at Unitec's four campuses] will now be able to access their email accounts, share calendars, collaborate on projects, and share videos anywhere in the world.
