Leavers and Google Accounts

Started by Claire Buist 25 Oct 2013 1:49pm () Replies (12)

I wonder if anyone can offer suggestions, ideas or epiphenies with regards to Google Apps and students leaving. Our Year 6 children are moving onto schools that are not in the cloud and we will be closing their accounts and removing them from our domain. This is our first set of learners leaving since we have been in the cloud. 

How might schools 'hand over' children's google accounts? We are contemplating making copies and then making their caregivers owners of their docs or putting them onto a USB. 

I'd appreciate any insights...

    You can download most Google content using the Google Takeout service - https://www.google.com/settings/takeout

    You can select individual folders or download all into a compressed file - you can choose from several formats depending on whats best for your OS.


    You can download content from Drive, Youtube, Blogger .

    Under Google Drive - you can download files into different formats eg, PDF or Word, Excel etc

    Once Google has created the archive you can download the compressed file to a computer.

    The other option would be to transfer the ownership of the docs and blogs to another Google account ie a parents google account.
