Google Apps

I’ve been asked to make a presentation to my colleagues in NS C@P, to describe Google Apps and how we at ICCNS use this tool. I thought that the best way to do this was to blog about it.

The reason I first looked at google apps was for the sole reason of wanting our domain name or organization name reflected in our email address: as opposed to I believe that this gives our organization more creditability and looks more professional. Google Apps gave us that and more. Rather then try to explain all this myself, I’m going to insert a video that will do a better job!

We give each youth intern an iccns email address, and that is the email address that they are to use for their work term. Each C@P site, likewise, has an email address. All email addresses are shared within the organization; if one of the interns needs to contact someone within our organization, that email address would automatically be in his/her contact list.

We encourage employees to use this Start Page, but some choose to forward their email to their personal email account – which is their decision.

For a more in depth look you can view the following video:

I’m a big fan of Google, and had already been using GMail and GCalendar, so it was easy for me to migrate to google apps. I know that this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I wanted to share the positive experience we’ve had with this application with you.



One response to “Google Apps

  1. I agree with you about the advantages of Google. In the past 2 months I have researched Google Apps and how they can be used in an educational enviornment (K-12) and I am convinced, you can do anything the average person would need to do. Teaching processes, not software!! Google provides what is needed to get the job done and improve productivity. It’s a verb….Lets Google! Googlz in Virginia
