Google's free course Mapping With Google, is a self-paced course beginning on June 10. The course will feature video and text tutorials on the features of #Google_Maps, #Google_Earth, and Google Maps Engine Lite.
One of the common concerns or question that I hear from educators about using Google services revolves around the question of "can I get my information out of Google?" The answer is yes. At the #GoogleTakeout site you can create an offline archive of your data. To do so just visit Google Takeout and select the service(s) you want to archive.
