The Google Bus goes "App to School"

In July, we announced a milestone of 1 million active users on Google Apps for Education and our plans for the first-ever "App to School" cross-country road trip. Today, we hit the road in the Google Bus to visit 10 universities across the U.S.

To kick the trip off, we're announcing we've reached 2 million active users, and 17 new customers to add to the thousands of universities already on Google Apps. To make it really interesting, we also made Video for Google Apps available for educational institutions.

New customers include:

  • Austin Community College
  • Clark College
  • Clovis Community College
  • Delaware County Community College
  • Illinois Central College
  • Lewis Clark State College
  • Maine Township High School District 207
  • Oberlin College
  • Old Dominion University
  • Ottawa University
  • Pierce College District
  • Saint Ignatius High School
  • San Mateo County Community College District
  • Southeastern Community College
  • St. Olaf College
  • Universidad Cesar Vallejo Lima Norte
  • University of Alaska

For the entire month of September, the bio-diesel fueled bus (see photo) will be visiting campuses to give students, professors and faculty a chance to play with our latest technology, talk with Google product experts and share how they're using Google Apps with our team.

We will post some of our stories from the road, so be sure to follow us across the country and visit us on our new student blog.
