Before you Consider Other Solutions
If you are considering using a solution or an add-on that integrates with Google that is not mentioned above, please contact the ITS Support Center to ensure the solution complies with all requirements related to Information Security, FERPA and privacy of student information, security, and accessibility. See Click-through Services and Allowable Data Use for a summary of these issues and related resources.
Also, solutions not sanctioned for instructional use by the campus or division/department should not offer incentives to the student or have a cost to the student.
