Google First Wizarding College

The Google First Wizarding College was Notre Dame’s campaign to promote Google’s productivity tools (e.g. Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, Chat) to help Notre Dame work smarter, smoother, and safer in our increasingly hybrid environment. Players completed a series of magical assignments and tasks that introduced various Google productivity tools and features. Each level consisted of a map with various tasks and included a short exam. Players earned prizes and entries into drawings for each of seven levels throughout spring 2022.

Wizard school was great! I enjoyed the storylines, the "magic", and the lessons.  I would definitely participate in additional lessons.  I looked forward to a new wizard school lesson every two weeks! Thank you! ~ Participant
