You will also learn about the different storage and database options available on Google Cloud. 

Afterwards, you’ll have a chance to explore other Google Cloud offerings like Kubernetes Engine and App Engine, and learn more about our managed containerized environments. 

The Cloud OnBoard will end with experts guiding you through hands-on labs where you can practice using the Google Console, Google Cloud Shell, and more.

This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.
