In 2010, Kent State University will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary.
This week Kent State officially began their migration to the Google Apps Education Edition suite of online collboration tools, including the Mountain View, CA based internet company’s popular web based email application, Gmail, for their nearly 80,000 users. Last Thursday, as part of a pre-launch test and user outreach effort, the first Kent State Gmail account was issued to student reporter Glennis Siegfried of the University’s daily student newspaper, The Kent Stater.
SADA Systems, Inc. is managing the deployment process with Kent State’s information technology team. The cornerstone of the project is SADA’s development of a unique opt-in solution for Kent’s users to migrate email data from the current Kent State service via a self-service web page. At press time over 10,000 students had opted in, and migrated their email and contacts from the legacy system, to Google Apps.
