    this is so boring. amazing how can google get attention for doing something like this. this is like microsoft office training 5 years ago. where is the new pedagogy? this was all about how to work with our tools. company like google should do be able to do more with the money they have available. look what microsoft is doing at .

    Sorry to bore you, @romanca. If Microsoft is doing something similar to the GTA for their products I’d love to know about it– Please share the link.

    Google is creating phenomenal tools and sharing them with the world– I’d love to see MS innovate in similar ways.

    I am not sure, but when the application is available it will be posted on I’d guess they’ll do another one later in the fall, but I am not sure.
