Beginning Monday, August 29th, Google will be upgrading its Education suite of apps. Google is doing this to expand the set of great tools available to us. Just accept a new Terms of Agreement when you log in on Monday. As soon as you do this, you'll be able to use new services, like Blogger, Google Reader, and Picasa for photos.
There will be no loss of service or downtime during this upgrade. If you had previously created an additional personal Google Apps account using your Macalester email address, you will be asked to create a new personal account in this process.
Direct any questions to email@example.com or call 651-696-6525.
