Policy Update: Guidelines on Cloud Applications

A new set of guidelines for instructors is now available, Guidelines on Cloud Applications: Advice for Instructors.

When instructors find that tools provided by the University of Minnesota (UMN), including those provided by the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD), do not meet their instructional needs, they may consider using non-UMN applications and services. While university-provided and campus-provided applications and services meet UMN guidelines for privacy, intellectual property, security and records retention, providers of non-UMN applications and services may not. This document provides guidance to those instructors considering the use of non-UMN applications and services, as well as to those who are already using them.
