According to Google, seven of the eight Ivy League universities and 72 of this year’s top 100 U.S. Universities have adopted Google's cloud applications: specifically, GMail, Google Drive, Google Calendar and Google Sites. No doubt may of the students are also using services such as search, Google Docs, and G+. The key for universities is the cloud environment, reducing their infrastructure overhead. Also, says Google, "By going Google, students and teachers have access to a whole new way of doing things: They can better collaborate in and out of the classroom; office hours can be held via hangouts; e-portfolios can be created and maintained in a Google Site; professors can give real-time feedback in a Google document (no red pen necessary); and group projects can take place across continents instead of side-by-side in a library."
