1. Go to the Google Apps Edumail domain by typing “www.google.com/a/edumail.vic.gov.au” into your browser address bar (or use a desktop shortcut or bookmark to get there instead).
2. Choose “create an account here” (lower left of screen) and complete the steps that follow.
3. Check your edumail account, click on the confirmation link and you’ll be taken to a Google webpage confirmring that your email address has been verified. Then choose “Click here to continue” and you’ll be able to use Google Apps to communicate, share and collaborate with colleagues who use Edumail.
UPDATE: Google closed “Google Apps for Teams”, the system being used by DEECD. Fortunately, there is an even better alternative for Edumail users – Google Apps for Education (GAFE). With GAFE you can even redirect your edumail to your Google Apps account and have all the convenience and portability of gmail for your professional communications.
