Starting in the fall of 2011, SchoolZone will provide access to your Share (Google) Apps within EPS. This section of the help site will include instructions and videos for how to use some of the features, and will highlight how these changes effect how you may have done things in the past in my.epsb.ca.
As with all other pages on this site, all pages are editable and you can add your suggestions or comments or strategies by clicking on "New Post" below.

Create a Class Calendar in Google that can be viewed in SchoolZone
Anytime you make changes to your class calendar it will automatically be updated in SchoolZone.
With the integration of Google Docs in SchoolZone, there is very little need for this feature any longer. We created Google Groups based on SchoolZone class lists in the past in order to make it easier for teachers to share documents, sites, and calendars with their classes. Now that you can share Google Docs directly through SchoolZone, you might only need this feature for things like keeping a site restricted to one class, or having a discussion group for a class.
You can create Google Groups for each of your classes through SchoolZone. Hit the “Google Groups” button on the “Planner" tab in SZ. Just click the button once, the groups are created and updated each night as your class lists change. Your class data has to have been uploaded by the front office staff. (If you think about it, if class data hasn't been uploaded Google has no group info to use...)
