The Apps in Google Apps

All of our schools are set up with Google Apps accounts, so here's an overview of the available features (adapted from http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/edu/communication.html).  These may not all be enabled by your local administrator.

  • Email: 7+ GB storage, mobile access, spam and virus protection, contact sharing, IMAP, and POP.  If chat is enabled, it includes built-in instant messaging, voice and video chat.  Can include message filtering and security through Postini.
  • Calendar: Multiple calendars, shared and public calendars, room/resource scheduling, mobile access
  • Docs: Online word processing, spreadsheets, forms, presentations, mobile access
  • Sites: Collaborative website creation with videos, images, gadgets, and documents integration
  • Groups: User-created groups providing mailing lists, easy content sharing, searchable archives
  • Video: Securely share videos with your school - anyone can add comments, tags and ratings - with 10GB included free with every domain

If you have questions or comments about any of this, feel free to contact any of the consultants or comment on this post.
