Had a really interesting day at Google Apps for Education UK User Group or #guug11 conference, there were some great presentation and discussion around how google applications are been used at all levels of education.

In terms of some of the educational presentations, there was a very interesting talk by  Niall Sclater, Director of Learning Innovation at the Open University, who discussed the OUs migration over to google apps. He spoke about and how they plan to enable each student to have an iGoogle as their student homepage. One of the key issues that he raised was they are discovering some accessibilty issues with some of the apps. One of the highlights of this talk was how they intend to ingrate the google apps to make an ePortfolio system for their students.
