    • 6.
      • WHY Google Apps for Education?
    • 7. Because as much as we might be resistant…… We must EMBRACE technology!
    • 8.  
    • 9.
      • 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
