Last week I spent two “googly” days with Molly Schroeder learning about using Google Apps for Education with students and thinking about applying to become a Google Apps Certified Trainer. Molly was an excellent trainer and we learned a lot. Google Apps for Education is really useful and my only hesitation is that UAA isn’t completely on board with it. Our students use Google, but our faculty and staff use Microsoft!
To become a Google Apps Certified Trainer, you need to go through six online training modules which unfortunately are not “current.” Then, you have to submit an application, pass 6 tests, produce and share 2 videos, and write up a case study. I plan to start going through the modules but am very disappointed that the information in them is not current.
