Google Apps Marketplace adds EDU category

Although the Google Apps Marketplace has always had many tools that are useful to education (we have used Aviary and Creately), they have now added an apps category specifically for education, titled "EDU".  There are about 20 apps in there now including gradebooks and portfolio makers and such.  It will be exciting to see what education-specific products come out.

Google is also offering some webinars to help people get the most out of the new education offerings in the marketplace:
