With your Google Apps account at UPEI.ca you have the ability to easily share, collaborate, and participate with everyone else in the UPEI community. Combining the following four apps can lead to a lot of awesomeness.
Gmail – Gmail is the cornerstone of the Google Apps suite. And it is the primary address for all types of communication throughout the UPEI community. With a lifelong account, you’ll be able to easily communicate and revisit your classmates, friends, and colleagues as a student or alumni.

Drive – Google Drive continues to expand and push the boundaries of collaboration and participation on the web. Creating new or editing old documents has never been easier for groups, and many UPEI classes, centres, and services use Google Drive to share documents, presentations, spreadsheets and other data. This is an easy-to-use storage space for all your papers, assignments, and notes.

Calendar – Google Calendar lets you manage your timetable, allowing you to easily keep track of assignments, exams, or group meetings. Google calendars allow you to share your calendars with other users, letting project groups determine the best times to meet. With the ability to create multiple calendars, you can easily keep track of separate courses, as well as personal events, or your work schedule.

Sites – Google Sites can be used in variety of ways to help highlight your UPEI experience. In some classes you could use Google Sites to submit assignments or papers, construct a wiki, or more. You can keep your sites private, or share them with classmates, or all over the world, making it an excellent tool for sharing portfolios of your work across disciplines.
