gMAV - Google Apps for Education
gMAV Google Apps for Education
gMAV is UNO's implementation of Google Apps for Education. It provides google applications to the UNO Community such as Google Drive, Google Sites, Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets. Though UNO provides many Google Suite Applications, however, we do not support recreational applications associated with Google such as Google Pay and Google Play Store.
While these Google services are currently offered at UNO, ITS strongly encourages users to begin using the similar service offerings from Microsoft 365.
