    Google Apps for Education

    Hi Forum!

    We are in the process of revamping our VLE system. We are currently using Moodle v1.6 and are looking to start afresh.
    I have heard that Google Apps for Education is a good cloud based option.

    Has anyone had any experience with Google Apps for Education or should we stick with Moodle and go to v2/3?

    Use both - Moodle integrates really well into google apps.

    This is true.
    Google Apps isn't really a Moodle replacement as there isn't a lot of interchangeable functionality. Google Apps or Live@edu is more of something that compliments Moodle quite well in the terms of extra functionality.
