Introduction

Created by Google and much like Microsoft 365, G-suite is a collection of tools and cloud storage that teachers can to use to create, organise and share content with their students. The G-suite range of tools includes some useful cloud-based, collaborative tools like Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Photos and many others.

G-suite files and tools also integrate well with Aula for easy sharing and collaboration.
