Google Apps for Lakehead University

According to IT Business, Lakehead University is the first Canadian institution to migrate to Google Apps for Education (GAFE). At 38,000 strong, Lakehead’s deployment is of similar size to that of Arizona State’s.

If GAFE experiences significant adoption, one wonders what might follow. For example, might Google acquire an online learning environment like Moodle or Sakai?

And of course in the bigger scheme of things, this is another interesting competitive volley directed at Microsoft, as Google continues to build online communities and garner mindshare.
