    • WHY Google Apps for Education?
  • 7. Because as much as we might be resistant We must EMBRACE technology!

    • Steps to Implement
    • GOOGLE APPS FOR EDUCATION
  • 10.
    • Step 1: Purchase A Domain
    • I used www.mydomain.com
    • $10.47 per year
  • 11.
    • Step 2: Register this domain for Google Apps
    • By going here to Google Apps for Education
    • Completing this form will immediately launch a standard edition of Google Apps while Google reviews the education application. Continue setting up the domain in the meantime.
    • Google will email requesting more information regarding application. Reply to the message with the required information.
  • 12.
    • If in 48 hours Google has not been upgraded, complete this form: http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/request.py?contact_type=nonprofit
    • Enable services for your domain and closely follow the instructions on-screen.
  • 13.
    • Step 2: Verify Domain Ownership
    • You must confirm that you own the domain you signed up with.
    • There are two verification methods:
    • 1. Upload an HTML file to your site
    • 2. Create a special CNAME record for your domain MY CHOICE
    • Must return to the website where domain was purchased and make additions there
    • For more help on how to create the CNAME record and add MX records for your domain, refer to this website:
    • http://support.hostgator.com/articles/e-mail/google-apps-email-walkthrough
  • 14.
    • Step 3: Customize Google Apps
    • Upload your logo on the control panel so it will appear on the sign-in page and on applications
    • Go into each product and customize
      • enable/disable services and certain options
      • relatively easy; some are very technical and may require help from IT personnel
      • choosing basic options is not difficult and will suffice unless there is interest in more advanced services
  • 15.
    • Step 4: Create User Accounts
    • Once signed up and customized, you can now create as many user accounts as you need from the control panel.
    • There are two ways to add users:
    • 1.Add users individually
    • 2.Add users in bulk
  • 16.
    • 1. Add users individually
    • To do this, click User Accounts tab and then Create a new user .
    • Enter each users full name, username and temporary password. Then click Create new user button.
    • Repeat for as many users as you have.
    • 2. Add users in bulk
    • Recommended if you have 10+ users in your organization, as adding each individually is tedious and time consuming.
    • To create multiple accounts at once, upload a spreadsheet of users accounts and usernames by click the Upload link from the User Accounts tab.
    • CSV Bulk Upload Template
