Subject: Re: GAFE time management question
 
My initial response was to just say "one hour" but I took the liberty of posting this to a Google Admin group I belong to and got a range of responses...https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ElizabethMcCarthy/posts/3vzRuiZPa2A

I would agree with several who stated in their posts that the bulk of the time would be just setting up the GAFE domain, once it's setup it runs itself. Most of an administrators time would be keeping up with GAFE changes or learning it's functionality.  Creating Classrooms and moving users from one OU to another is as simple as a click of a button. 

The key would be to have someone who understands the pedagogy of digital learning and how to support teachers/students leveraging GAFE for teaching and learning.  Teachers would have no need to work  in the admin console or management of GAFE domain.

Good morning,

I have a question for those folks who are running Google Apps for Education domains. Suppose a hypothetical GAFE domain had 100 active students and staff and 100 active devices (where 30 users are retired and 30 new ones added each semester), and say, 15 Google Classrooms. 

From an administration standpoint, how many hours per month would you estimate the super-admin and teachers would need to devote to maintaining that domain?

Thanks in advance for the help.
