Check out this GoogleApps Guide by Ian Addison - http://www.bit.ly/googleappsguide
Funny enough, it's available in Word DOCx format!
Ian writes the following in his introduction:
For me there are two main reasons for using Google Apps within school. One is collaboration and the other is cost. Google allows users to collaborate on a document or share a calendar with just a few clicks. This means that a whole group of users could be uploading data to a spread sheet or creating a website together with ease. Google Apps is relatively cost-free. The only cost will be for the domain name and web hosting...There is of course the time ‘cost’ but this guide will hopefully remove some of that. Bear in mind, whichever VLE or online tool you use, you will have a very similar time element to contend with!
I often wish that more Texas school districts had taken advantage of GoogleApps for Education, especially against the backdrop of economic wildfires raging in the State. Fear, uncertainty and doubt continue to reign.
