  • Google Workspace for Educaiton

    Posted by:

    A free software solution provided by Google, providing a full suite of email, file sharing/storage, and communication apps for ALL faculty and students. All faculty and students have infinite storage for their email and files. Gmail and Calendar apps are mandatory for faculty and all apps listed below are available and recommended for faculty and students.  In addition, Google provides software/hardware outside of GAFE that we support and recommend, also listed below. Finally, many third-party educational services and websites (such as Illuminate, Keyboarding Without Tears, and Lexia) use the Google account for authentication, with more on the way.  This makes the task of remembering usernames and passwords much easier on faculty and students.

  • Louisiana Student Privacy (Act 837/677)

    Posted by:

    State privacy laws enacted in 2015 restrict the sharing of student personally identifiable information (PII) under most circumstances.  Exceptions are allowed if the information is classified as “directory” which covers sharing out certain information (as defined in our policy and stated in our handbook) or is data shared to vendor software systems to do educational business.  However, ALL sharing of student PII must be covered by a statute compliant contract with the receiving entity.  Instruct your staff to NEVER share student data to 3rd parties unless you are certain that this data share is covered by a statute compliant contract.  A copy of all known contracts are on a Google Drive that is managed by Purchasing.  The law allows for CRIMINAL penalty on violations that is not to be more than 6 months in jail or over $10,000 in fines.
