Google tools at the Open University

On the StudentHomepage the following message is displayed:

... "The University will be deploying Google Apps for Education to run alongside other learning systems, with services that include: email, instant messaging, contact management, calendar, space for shared documents, and online document creation. There is the potential for more services to be added in the future.

These additional services are being provided to students to enable them to network and collaborate more effectively with each other. The default email provision for students will be with Google, but existing preferred email options will be maintained.

Google Apps will provide students with an area in which to store and share documents. They will also be able to create content without having to have an office application residing on their desktop – all carried out using a web browser on a range of platforms and devices." ...

It looks as though Office-type-of tools will become commodities available on the net. Leaving Office for the desktop for a limited group of power users. Typing homework can simply be done from within the browser although since I have a tablet PC Microsoft OneNote became one of my favourite programs of all times.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
