Google: Drive (cloud storage and productivity suite)

Google Docs is becoming Google Drive on regular Gmail accounts.  Our Skipjack mail is a Gmail product via Google Apps for Education.  Our students, faculty, and staff can login to their Skipjack accounts and access these features.  Google Drive will be released for Education apps soon, but a date has not been provided.  When you login to your Skipjack account  you will see a notice that it will be upgrading to Google Drive.

Here is a helpful review of the new Google Drive. 

What do you think about it?  How have you been using it for education?

Take the SmarterMeasure Self-Assessment

SmarterMeasure is an assessment that measures learner readiness. SmarterMeasure is an indicator of the degree to which distance learning and/or learning in a technology rich environment will be a good fit for you. It will help you prepare to be successful as a student. You are not penalized for guessing on SmarterMeasure, please enter an answer for each question on the assessment. Upon completion of SmarterMeasure you will receive a score report which will not only help you understand your strengths and opportunities for improvement, but will also provide resources to help you succeed. Remember, this assessment is strictly for your benefit. Take the time to rate yourself honestly.

To Get Started…

Students may log in at http://chesapeake.readi.info. On this web page are two boxes labeled “username” and “password.”

Students will enter:
