Google Targets Education With New Apps Section

Google has forged numerous partnerships with various schools and universities over its brief history, and it is continuing to promote the use of technology in the sector with the launch of a new section of its population Apps Marketplace designed for education.

New apps in the Education section range from teaching aids to learning management systems, and Google is hoping the store will grow rapidly.

"We are very optimistic that schools and developers will see the exciting benefits of a centralized storefront of integrated web-apps," said a Google spokesman.

The store also features applications geared for students, such as the EasyBib offering, which helps students quickly develop properly formatted bibliographies.
