So the Cloud can help students learn, too. Google intends in September to launch a cross-country bus tour called "App to School" so that the company can speak with college students about how cloud computing can benefit education. "We're looking forward to meeting students to talk about Google Apps and hear how they're using our productivity tools on and off campus," said Jeff Keltner, Business Development Manager, Google Apps via the official Google Enterprise blog.

Since launching Apps Education Edition, Keltner added, Google has had great conversations with CIOs at leading universities about the benefits of bringing Google technology on campus.

He added: "The 'App to School' road trip extends that conversation to where the rubber meets the road (pun intended): to what used to be called "end users" -- the people who actually use our technology every day. One of the things we've found to be true is that we should always focus on the individual. We hope to learn how the folks we meet are using our products in cool ways that we might not have imagined."

Google Apps Education Edition is gaining momentum Keltner reported: more than a million users worldwide have adopted it "to embrace the possibilities of technology in education.

"The "App to School" road trip will be carried out in a retrofitted, eco-friendly bus, Google-style.
