You're an instructor at Laurel Junction, a community college in central Pennsylvania. The Geography Department is considering using ArcGIS Online to help teach students how to analyze data with maps. As a member of the department, you've been tasked with setting up a trial ArcGIS organization so you and other instructors can evaluate if it would be a good resource for your courses. In particular, you want to answer the following questions:
A colleague familiar with administering ArcGIS Online advised you on the initial steps to set up a trial organization. First, you'll activate the trial and complete some basic configuration tasks. You want an appealing site, so you'll add a custom banner and feature some apps and maps on the home page. You'll review some calculations to understand how credits are charged for the tools and storage that your department will use. You'll also create accounts for four instructors who will help you test. Finally, you'll learn where to download ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Maps for Office, and other apps, and assign licenses to members. Once your organization is ready for use and you are familiar with basic administration tasks, you can continue on your own with a more thorough configuration of the site.
