The Google Apps Marketplace offers products and services designed for Google users, including installable apps that integrate directly with Google Apps. Installable apps are easy to use because they include single sign-on, Google’s universal navigation, and some even include features that integrate with your domain’s data.

Google recently launched an education category in the Google Apps Marketplace designed to help schools and universities discover and deploy new web applications that integrate with their existing Google Apps accounts.

According to Google, the new education category includes over 20 applications ranging from learning management systems (LMS) to student tools and teaching aids – all of which integrate with Google Apps for Education.
