Google Apps is a package of online applications that makes communicating and collaborating at school easier and more efficient. The cornerstone of Google Apps is Gmail, Google's web-based e-mail program, which integrates with Google Docs, for creating and sharing documents, and Google Calendar, for coordinating schedules. All of these services are hosted online, so e-mail, documents, and calendars are always accessible from any computer.
Gmail is Google's web-based e-mail program, which provides users with over 6 gigabytes of storage, fast Google search, and powerful spam protection. As part of Google Apps for Education, e-mail addresses can be @alumni.rmu.edu rather than @gmail.com
Google Docs is an online application that lets you create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Documents are automatically saved and stored online, so you never have to worry about losing an important document. Sharing a document is as easy as sending a link - no more keeping track of multiple e-mail attachments!
Google Calendar is a fast and simple online calendar application. It lets you see your whole schedule in context - you can easily share and connect your calendar with those of your friends, former classmates, and anyone else.
Google Talk is a clean, easy-to-use application for instant messaging and voice calls using computers. Google Talk is integrated in the Gmail interface, so you can easily switch between chatting and e-mailing.
Start Page is a central page where you can access your online services, including your Gmail and Google calendar. You can also add customized content from around the Web using fun, useful gadgets.
