Video Review: Cloud Save extension - Cloud Save is a Chrome web extension that allows you to right click on links and files and then save the content directly to Google Drive, Picasa Web Albums, and many other cloud-based services, making it just a little bit easier to live in the cloud.

I remember using the PowerPoint version, but this looks nice too, especially if you use Google Apps/Docs

I would bet +Laura Moore or +Laura Moore could use this in the classroom.

Gmail Safety and Security for Schools - Ever since Google Apps moved away from Postini Message Security there have been a lot of questions about how to manage Gmail safety and security settings for schools, especially for students. For example, topics include how to control who students can send email to and receive email from, how to enforce "bad word lists", how to create inbound and outbound content filters, and more.

Last week I gave a presentation on this topic at the Ohio Educational Technology Conference. I have pulled together all of the resources from that presentation on the Apps User Group website at:

http://www.appsusergroup.org/presentations/email-security

The resources include:
- A 50-minute video of the training session
- A printable help guide
- A document with a sample objectionable word list
- Sample student Gmail guidelines
- And more

Let me know if you have any questions or helpful information from your experience with these settings.
