Google Apps Presentation at Staff Development Session, October 22

Ben Beachy led an Information Systems presentation at an EMU Staff Development session on Tuesday, October 22, which described the implementation plan being developed to convert EMU’s email and calendar systems to Google Apps for Education.  The session began with a short set of slides which began with the statement “Microsoft fits EMU today but Google positions us for the future.”  This was followed with information about our current limitations, our incentives to make this change, the commitments Information Systems is making to the campus community and the anticipated implementation schedule.

A page of FAQs was also distributed to the attendees.
