Google has added another product to its education-based arsenal: a tailored cloud storage service called Drive for Education.
The academic version of its online storage solution can be used with Google Apps for Education and boasts unlimited storage with transfer support for files up to 5TB in size. In addition, the cloud storage system includes reporting and auditing tools, as well as encryption both from the device and between Google data centers to keep files safe.
Drive for Education will also be bolstered by Google Apps Vault, a compliance-based tool which will be arriving to all Apps for Education users by the end of the 2014.
Dubbed a modern “bookbag” by Google, the free cloud storage service aims to replace books, paper and folders dragged about by students. As part of the Google Apps for Education suite, students and educators will be able to manage projects seamlessly. For example, a teacher could assign an essay through one app, and students could complete and upload their work through Drive.
What Google says about its Google Drive for Education:
“We want educators and students who use Google Apps for Education to be able to focus on the learning experience — not the technology that supports it. With Drive for Education, users can put an end to worries about storage limits and more easily maintain a safe, effective and compliant learning environment.”
