Guidelines on Cloud Applications: Advice for Instructors

Adopted by the EPC Subcommittee on Information Technology and Library on February 6, 2012

Accepted by the Educational Policy Committee on April 11, 2012

Adapted from the University of Wisconsin Madison guidelines with permission

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.

Use:  Communicate plans to use non-UMN applications and services to students.

Terms of Service:  Understand the risks to you and your students.

Privacy:  Protect student privacy and identity.

Intellectual Property:  Understand who owns content and what they can do with it.

Retention, Accessibility, Support and Recovery:  Comply with regulations and campus policies.
