Below are answers to some common questions about the technical deployment of Google Apps
Certain Google properties, such as Google Sites, allow users to access community-created Gadgets. Some schools The Feed Server Client Tool (FSCT) allows administrators to set which gadgets may be accessed within their domain. You can read more about this at http://edutraining.googleapps.com/Training-Home/module-5-sites/chapter-3/8-4.
Some school districts want to block users from changing their Google Apps passwords. To achieve this, specify a ‘Change Password URL’ in the single sign-on settings page; when users attempt to change their password, this will redirect them to the supplied URL.
If we are planning to block YouTube, how do I enable my students to still access YouTube's educational content?
We recommend implementing YouTube for Schools, which gives you a way to access educational videos from inside your school network. By enabling the program, schools gain access to a broad set of educational videos on YouTube EDU and the ability to select the specific videos that are accessible from within the school network. Schools can sign up at YouTube.com/schools and learn more by visiting our YouTube for Schools FAQs or Product Forum.
