GAFEhelp.ca logoWell… it is finally here.

After many hours of planning our site through Google Hangout discussions and shared Google Docs, after endless screencast recording restarts, Google Drawing edits, HTML fiddling, and litres of coffee, GafeHelp.ca is live!

Our help site was made for all of you Google Apps for Education users out there looking for a little Gafe-Help!

We have a lot planned for GafeHelp – what’s here now is just a start. We look forward to sharing our ideas and curating those of others so that you can get the best out of this amazing suite of tools.

We hope you enjoy the site and find it helpful.
