  • Tammi King
    Tammi King United States of America In the instructional parts about using the apps, the instructor needs to talk alot slower. This is more for someone who is already using Google and not for someone like myself who has never even touched Google. 2015-11-03 20:11:00

    Trish Groves Ireland This course was a fascinating insight into Google Apps for business, and the case studies in particular were very useful. The video learning was easy to follow, and it was simple to review a video, or pause to make notes. Although the material is slightly dated (for example iGoogle was phased out in 2013), it's still sufficiently relevant for today's business world. While taking this course, I searched online and discovered Google for Nonprofits, which is basically a Google Apps suite available free of charge to nonprofit organisations. Thanks for the course - I really enjoyed it. 2015-06-24 21:06:14
