FAU - Owl Apps Project

FAU has partnered with Google to bring all FAU students – current as well as former – Google Apps for Education. FAU's implementation is Owl Apps!

Owl Apps is a collection of Web-based programs - Mail, Docs (document files, spreadsheets, presentations), Calendar, Talk, and Sites. You can give other Owl Apps users access to individual files if you wish - great for collaboration and group projects.

Overview

Power & Convenience

  • Owl Apps/Owl Mail gives you a full 25 GB of storage for your email, which is 1000 times the storage you had in MyFAU. Now, you no longer need to decide if you will delete a message or store it on your computer.
  • Innovative features to help you work more efficiently, including e-mail labels, e-mail conversations, and Google-powered search.
  • You can use Owl Apps from any computer, anywhere, to get e-mail, check your calendar, or collaborate on a document. All you need is an Internet connection and a Web browser. 
  • Never lose data, even if your computer crashes or is lost or damaged. All your work is hosted at Google, and safely backed up on Google's secure servers instead of on your computer.

Easier Collaboration

  • Working in a group for a class? Share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations that multiple team members can view and edit all at the same time.
  • Coordinate meetings and events by sharing calendars with friends and classmates.
  • Send and receive instant chat messages right in your Owl Mail window.
  • Build team Web sites to quickly publish all sorts of shared information, such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations, files, videos, and gadgets.
