Welcome to the user adoption site for Google Apps at Mount Royal University. Google Apps empowers students and employees with an email, calendar and document management system that is just as collaborative and creative as they are!
In the summer of 2012, Mount Royal University students migrated to Google Apps for Education. This migration was well-received by students. In 2013 the President’s Executive Council and Board of Governors approved of migrating MRU Faculty and Staff to Google Apps. There are many benefits with migrating to Google Apps for Education. These benefits include better collaboration with Faculty, Staff and Students, mobile-friendly access, and campus-wide calendaring including booking rooms and resources.
Project status and schedule
ITS is now in the scheduling and implementation stages for the Google Migration for Faculty and Staff. For more information on preparing for Google migration please visit the MRU Google Learning Centre. View project schedule.
Important: Once you have been migrated you will still have access to your Lotus Notes client for applications such as Pre-Travel Authorization, Expense Reports and Faculty Curriculum.
You will notice there are some differences between Google Apps and Lotus Notes. To aid you in the transition process please visit the MRU Google Learning Centre. Here you will find instructional material covering how to manage, customize and use all of your Google Apps features, discover extra features, view timely tips and view a FAQ section for questions you might have.
