  • Here are the domains managed by the administrator. In this case there is only one school, college or university. However if you are running a series of associate schools in a district, you can have one administrator covering kent.state.edu or surrey.state.edu and so on, with different co-branding on each. These controls are managed through the Windows Live Admin Center, which oversees the entire Live@edu service.

  • The domain admin console is where you can control your domains from. This allows you to switch over your existing IMAP email servers to Live@edu once the migration has completed. You can also run reporting tools to see how many users you have and to keep track of domain management.

  • The co-branding element is the most important part for the end user. It allows the student user to feel at one with the service with their school, college or university logo at the top, while the institution can maintain branding consistency. From here you can make changes, preview them and if they are correct, publish them to the web so the end user can begin using the new layouts.
