  • Getting ready for Glow! Glow will soon be made available to schools in Dundee. The ICT Support Team at EDS is currently finalising all the behind-the-scenes work and, very shortly, a small group of schools will be given their usernames and passwords to get started. The intention is that all Dundee schools will have access, by the end of this term, to all the component parts of Glow except Glow Mail. The transfer from Easy Mail to Glow Mail is likely to take place over the Easter holiday period, with users being given prior warning so that they can forward emails from Easy Mail to Glow Mail. More information about this will be issued in due course and Headteachers will be briefed at the ICT Refresh and Glow meetings coming up soon.
