CiCS Quiz - Google Apps, the Answers

The annual Suppliers Fair took place on Wednesday 10th October. Staff from CiCS were on hand to discuss our services, in particular what Google apps are now available for staff.

Thanks to all those who entered our CiCS quiz ‘Name the Google App’.  The winners were Helen and Angela from the Registrar and Secretary’s Office.  If you knew a few of the icons and guessed or googled the rest the answers can be found below:

Google Chrome. Chrome is a free web browser developed by Google.

Google Groups. Groups can be used by you and your colleagues to share Google Apps, such as defining groups in Calendar.

Google +.  Google+ makes it easier to collaborate and communicate using video conferencing or online discussions through circles of contacts.

Google Hangouts. Hangouts let you video chat with up to 10 people, face-to-face. Just click the Start a Hangout button and invite your colleagues.

Google Docs. Google Docs makes it easy for you to share and collaborate on documents, spreadsheet and presentations. You can also create web forms that allow many people to input data into an online spreadsheet.
