Service: Email, Calendaring and Related Collaboration Services (iSpartan)

Description

iSpartan is UNCG's implementation of Google Apps for Education (GAFE). GAFE is a collection of web-based collaboration tools, including email, chat, calendaring, website, videoconferencing, word processing, and spreadsheets. Google Apps collaboration features include the ability to share and collaboratively edit documents and Google websites, and to participate in multi-participant videoconferences and content sharing through Google+ “Hangouts". These tools work through a Web browser, by logging in at http://ispartan.uncg.edu.   

All faculty, staff, and students receive an iSpartan account for access to Gmail and related Google Apps (such as Calendar, Drive, and Sites) when they activate their University Computing Accounts. iSpartan uses your standard UNCG user name and password.

Your iSpartan account also provides access to additional Google services that are not part of the “Google Apps” suite of tools. These include popular online content publishing and collaboration tools such as Blogger and YouTube. Google Takeout allows you to download your Google Apps data (email, docs, etc.) so that it can be easily moved or imported into other internet services.  

Information Technology Services (ITS) provides iSpartan setup and assistance on laptops and mobile devices (e.g. ipads, ipods, netbooks, and other handheld devices). Walk-in assistance is provided in the Technology Support Center.
