We couldn’t help but to share what we’ve come across today. As we were logging into our g mail account we couldn’t help but notice the “Grow with Google” link. You can click here to visit the Google page, which has all the juicy details. It looks as though Google has partnered with Coursera, Goodwill and others to bring us tools for success. Google seems to be offering tons of resources to students, teachers,job seekers and even developers! It’s worth a look to see what all they have to offer. As we browse through their site we will be sure to share what we’ve uncovered. We plan to benefit from these tools as well. Good luck.
