Google Workspace is a set of Google apps (Gmail, Calendar, Google+, Hangouts, Drive, Docs/Sheets/Forms/Slides) that work in unison seamlessly. For instance, you can receive a message in Gmail and instantly convert it into a Calendar event. When you make a comment in Docs, Sheets, or Slides, collaborators automatically receive email alerts. With a single click, you can launch a Hangouts video meeting from your inbox or calendar. Additionally, many Google Suite features can be integrated into Blackboard, for example you can directly submit your assignments to your course, from your drive. Using these tools saves time, increases productivity, and helps to stay connected!
