Your TGS Account
Trinity has introduced Google Apps for Education which is a managed suite of key Google products and services. All students are automatically allocated an account which can be access by using their Trinity e-mail address and password.
Google Apps for Education includes dozens of critical security features specifically designed to keep student data safe, secure and in their control. Data belongs to the student, and Apps tools offer complete control over sharing settings. Essentially Google Apps for Education is an integrated content creation, communication and collaboration solution.
Google Apps for Education allow Trinity students to:
> Login to their device and download applications from the web store.
> Use unlimited secure storage on Google Drive
> Create blogs and websites with default internal access (viewable to students and staff only)
> Create and publish videos to YouTube with default internal access (viewable to students and staff only)
> Access and edit their documents from anywhere in the world
To access and edit your Google Drive documents from home, click on the Google Drive icon in TNet or go directly to:
...and login with your Trinity email address (email@example.com) and password.
