iSpartan is UNCG's implementation of Google Apps for Education (GAFE). GAFE is a collection of web-based collaboration tools, including email, chat, calendaring, word processing, and spreadsheets. These tools work through a Web browser, without requiring users to buy or install software.
All faculty, staff, and students receive an iSpartan account for access to Gmail and related Google Apps (such as Calendar, Docs, and Sites) when they activate their University Computing Accounts. iSpartan uses your UNCG user name and password.
