Google Apps and the Mac

At Lincoln Sudbury RHS, we’re considering using Google Apps to communicate with each other and with our students.  If you’re using a Chromebook, all you need to do is log in with your Google name and password, and everything is set up.  On a Mac, you can just use the Chrome browser the same way, and everything will just work.  But you can do much more, too such as:

  • Adding your Gmail to the OS X Mail app.
  • Adding your Google Calendar to the OS X Calendar.
  • Adding a Google Drive folder to the computer to let you work off line.

I made a screencast to show some of these things, and you can watch it here. Note you can watch it in full screen mode to really see what is going on.
