Google Apps for Education at E&H: The Blog
This blog is intended to be a blog for the duration of the Google Apps for Education migration. The purpose is to help the community through the learning stages of the conversion. So here we go…
Background: [Lorraine] I got used to the Gmail interface several years back when it first launched. Then it was pretty basic in its features and design, but it quickly blossomed and Google has been adding features and functionality ever since. The main difference between early Gmail and other email reader applications was that Gmail introduced the innovative “Conversations” feature that allowed the user to read their emails in threads with the original message on top and replies in order underneath it. It is still present in Gmail–some people like it and others don’t. I like it in my personal Gmail account, but prefer the chronological listing of my messages in my E&H work email.
There are some rather large (and terrific) features that the Google Apps for Education suite offers to its users that are not found in the personal Gmail accounts that end users can get for themselves. We urge you to explore all the features of Google Apps for Education once you get your email migrated over.
