G Suite for Education, formerly known as Google Apps for Education (GAFE), is a set of educational tools, or apps, available on Google Cloud. Apps are mini-programs that operate in the browser, whereas extensions are software programs that operate within the browser. These tools allow both educators and students to work on tasks on any device and from any place. The core apps in the G Suite package allow users to create, communicate, and collaborate in real-time within a flexible environment. These apps operate in the Chrome Web Browser with a sign-in Google user.
