Apps and Extensions

There is a wide range of apps and extensions available through the Google Marketplace and the Chrome Web Store that provide additional functionality to core G Suite Apps as well as other standalone functions.

What are apps and extension?

  • Extensions are additional features that can be installed to enhance functionality.
  • An app is generally a standalone web-based function. For example to create a document, edit a photo, listen to audio and more.

How do I get an app or extension installed?

If you feel that an app or extension would be beneficial to your establishment please get in touch with your Glow Key Contact. A list of apps already in use by other establishments can be provided by Education Scotland enquiries@glow.gov.uk on request.

An app/extension request form will need to be completed and submitted to your Glow Key Contact and Information Security Officer for approval. To request a form contact enquiries@glow.gov.uk

When filling out the request form please give consideration to the educational value, security and privacy of the app or extension, including GDPR compliance.
