Mimosas & Appletinis

CTO of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), the program directors of the Writing program and the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Programs were kicking back and shooting the breeze and decided that our students can benefit from a powerful communication and collaborative platform that would allow them to work with each other and to more effectively develop their writing portfolios. They thought: docs, spreadsheets, calendaring, chat, googols of email space!

CTO TEL thought: googols of email, googols of email, where can I find all those things?
