LT: Using Edugate to Access Google Apps in a Microsoft Environment
University College Cork is a predominantly Microsoft Environment. AD, Exchange, Windows and Office are essential to how we deliver services to staff and how they use IT on campus. However, our students are provided with Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and to provide a Google collaboration environment we have started to provide staff with GAFE accounts. Staff will continue to use their MS Exchange email (Gmail will be turned off for staff) and they will receive GAFE email alerts through their existing mailboxes. This talk will outline how Edugate has enabled the use of Google Apps for staff and how UCC has rolled out the service to staff.
