Google Apps vs Office 365: Which wins over users?

Google Apps vs Office 365: Which wins over users? | KnightTime Technology | Scoop.it

"I really do want to fully appreciate Office 365 and what it has to offer, but it seems that at every turn, Microsoft throws a prickly thorn into its side with all the roundabouts and catch 22’s that represent its showing in the cloud email atmosphere. If Microsoft claims that it’s truly invested with a “We’re All In” approach to the cloud infrastructure sphere, they need to place a better foot forward with Office 365. Google Apps innovates on a rapid-fire basis, and the users I support continuously see Office 365 as nothing more than a “me-too” product not ready for prime time usage."

Learning with 'e's: Teacher beliefs

"Put the political issues (such as regulation of activities and bans on the use of certain technology in schools) to one side for a moment. Do the same with the technical issues such as lack of bandwidth or hardware, or human issues such as lack of knowledge or skill. These have an impact on the success of technology integration in schools, but by far the biggest barrier to change lies inside the head the teacher."
