G Suite Training to be Retired September 2019

G Suite Training Retiring Sept 2019
August 16, 2019

Google has some new training and learning materials coming your way

As of September 30, 2019, the G Suite Training Chrome extension will no longer be available to users. The extension will be disabled for any users who have the extension installed, and although the extension will still be visible in the Chrome Extensions list, users won’t be able to open it. 

Instead, Google is providing new training and learning materials that are easy to access within the apps and allow you to offer Google suggestions and feedback. 

Next Steps

This change will be automatic and no action is necessary on your part. However, we recommend adjusting any G Suite training or onboarding programs so they no longer include the G Suite Training product.

On Campus Training Resources

The following hands-on training resources can help you stay up-to-date on G Suite at the University of Alberta and take your knowledge to the next level:

Alternative Training Resources

Google has simplified how to  find training resources within several G Suite apps. A new “?” button next to the search bar in Gmail, Calendar, and Drive will grant you access to a range of help and support content, and the Help menu in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides now has the “Training” and “Updates” options available.

The following training resources are also available as an alternative to the G Suite Training Chrome extension:

Did you know that you can also provide feedback and suggestions to Google about a particular G Suite app or feature? Both the new “?” button and the updated Help menu have the option to send feedback or report a problem. Google uses this feedback to prioritize what types of new features and functions to implement in G Suite applications.
