Gmail is a versatile resource for the classroom. My school district recently switched to G-Suite and using Google has made student access and communication easier. Since everything is bundled together and regulated by the school, students have been able to develop a new, safe means of communication with their instructors and other students for academic matters. This process was aided along by the fact that everyone started from scratch at the same point, allowing use of gmail in the classroom to become the established norm. The distance learning environment of the last year and a half strengthened the reliance upon this tool. It is self-contained, uniform, and everyone is used to using it.
