Develop with Google for Education
Google for Education focuses on creating educational experiences for over 90 million students and teachers all over the world. In concert with developers, we work to foster multifaceted learning experiences through solutions like Google Classroom, G Suite for Education, Google Expeditions and a diverse ecosystem of Android and Chrome OS apps. We support student learning, academic research and university infrastructure with Google Cloud Platform. Our products, when put into the hands of educators and students, open new opportunities for teaching and learning.
Google for Education has programs and resources designed to support developers that create content, technology, and tools integrated with Google for Education products to ensure we jointly create a seamless user experience for educators and students, from app distribution, to single sign-on.
Reach students by building for Chrome OS
To most effectively reach schools, make sure your solutions work well on Chromebooks, used by over 40 million students and the #1 selling device in K12 schools in the US, Canada, Sweden, Benelux, and New Zealand.
Chromebooks come in various form factors with easy deployment and management capabilities. Chromebooks support Android apps, progressive web apps and Chrome extensions that open up new doors for students and teachers to discover and adopt your learning solutions.
Build immersive VR classroom experiences
Google provides developers with two virtual reality (VR) platforms: Daydream features high quality mobile VR, ideal for immersive, longer-form experiences while Cardboard features affordable, light-weight hardware that's easy to hop into, making it perfect for quicker VR experiences.
Google VR APIs include everything you need to develop for these platforms, including libraries, developer samples, and design guidelines.

Cloud computing has transformed the way students learn and educators teach over the past decade. From building the next generation digital library to creating scalable learning apps, education technology companies are rapidly developing innovative cloud-based solutions for students, educators, and administrators alike.
By building with Google Cloud, EdTech companies can cost-efficiently scale and secure their applications with the support of Google behind them.
