What is the difference between @agoraeagles.org and @agora.org Google Apps accounts?
This is a great question, and a common one from staff. Both accounts are Google Apps for Education accounts, which means they have the same features. There are some important differences that benefit staff.
The new Google Apps accounts (@agora.org), are tied to the new systems Agora will be using. When a person is hired, their data will cascade through the system and all of their accounts will be create automatically. This runs the gamut from tools like Blackboard to Google Apps and Hapara.
The new Google Apps accounts (@agora.org) also allow someone to share a document with your work email address and you have instant access. With the @agoraeagles.org account you have to then request access, which can be a time consuming process.
These two distinctions will make the user experience much better for everyone. We do not have a timeline for closing the @agoraeagles.org domain, but we are asking staff to being moving their documents to the new domain.
