As mentioned before SOAS migrated to Google Apps in May 2008, changing their applications to Gmail, Google Calendar and the Google Talk (for instant messaging).
This month they have just released Google Docs, which they hope will encourage students and staff at SOAS to collaborate more with each other.
Google Docs presentations have been running this week to offer an overview of the features and functions available and to help create an awareness of the new tool.
The IT Team at SOAS released Google Docs to their all staff and students accounts 6 days ago and have not had any complaints or queries so far! It appears the students and staff have adapted to the new tool quite well.
