OCApps Portal

OCApps is a web-based suite of applications powered by Google. This encompasses a wide array of apps including email, an online calendar, digital storage for documents, a website and wiki builder, and storage for contacts. Below you can find instructions on setting up your OCMail account or using the features of any other application in the suite. Note: Many links below are external–as indicated by the External.png image–and connect to Google's main database of information. Need more help? Contact the CIT Help Desk at x58197.


Email at Oberlin College is called OCMail and is powered by Google—which means it looks a lot like GMail. We recommend that you access your email through a web browser using OCMail's web interface. We also support users who want to access their email through Mac Mail or Thunderbird. Outlook can be configured for Oberlin College email access, but CIT does not support its use.

OCCal is a contact and time-management web application powered by Google. It allows users to synchronize their OCMail contacts with a web-based calendar.


OCSites is a website and wiki builder powered by Google. With OCSites, you can quickly gather a variety of information in one place -- including videos, calendars, presentations, attachments, and text -- and easily share it for viewing or editing with a small group, just the Oberlin College community, or the world.

Documents and Storage

OCDocs provides online storage for documents—including Word documents, OpenOffice, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF documents. OCDocs also allows you to share those documents with colleagues, create new documents, edit documents that you've already uploaded, all from the web.

Additional Apps

Google has recently made almost all of their web services and applications available to their Google Apps for Education customers. A complete listing of these apps is available at http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=181865, and includes Blogger, Picasa, Reader, and YouTube.
