We buy books for each other for Christmas. Often they are hardback and second hand. The rest of the year I almost always only buy books for Kindle. Lately three books related to Google Classroom.

Google Educator is a typical online coures orherwise not dissimilar to something from Coursera or FutureLearn: a bit of reading, a bit of video
, a quiz and repeat. There’s a lot to get through.
