Google Apps Suite for students:
All students at Tabor automatically have a Tabor Google account, or Google Apps as it is known. This
includes student Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and other
applications such as Groups, and Sites (ie. creating a web site). This account will
provide you with a new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org - where your username
is your student ID number. This account will give you access to
student Gmail, Google Drive and Google Calendar. For more on Google Apps, click here.
Students need to check their Tabor Gmail account regularly, preferably daily, but certainly several times a week. All communication from Tabor lecturers and staff will go to your Gmail inbox, not to your personal email address (unless you redirect your student Gmail to your personal one). Students also need to open, and check their Forum daily digest, as all posts to forums in sites which you have access to, are embedded in this digest, including any posts made by a lecturer in a subject Announcements forum.
