New Google App Available - Lucidchart

Google has added another reason to choose Chrome over other web browsers - Lucidchart, an online flowchart program similar to and compatible with Microsoft Visio. Users can save their diagrams as PDF, PNG, and JPG or import Visio (.VDX) files for editing and collaboration.

A fully licensed educational version of Lucidchart is available with your D219 account by clicking on the “More” menu item near the top of your screen. You can also access it through the Chrome Web Store. If you haven’t visited the Chrome Web Store, it is definitely worth your while.

Lucidchart calls itself “collaborative diagramming” and works seamlessly with Google Apps. Groups can work on a chart together, in real-time, using the same collaborating methods employed with Google Apps.

Students also have access to Lucidchart through their NTHS219.org account.
