Many universities do renegotiate the standard terms of service that Google offers. While there are a number of renegotiated areas, the key changes are:
- standard use rights asserted by Google have been removed. Google no longer has any use rights to the documents or content uploaded to their servers.
- Users will be subject to the jurisdiction in the courts of Wisconsin in any legal proceedings
- Users may be represented by UW-Madison Legal Services if legal issues arise

I'm the Instructional technology manager at Saint Mary's College of California. I came across your site in research instructional technology pages and am interested in the article written about Google Docs. We are currently struggling with the terms of service agreement and have been advised by our lawyers to not go there....we have not added all the wonderful features Google has to offer, only gmail and Google Docs are turned on for students. Is this also the case at your university? I am curious about the special agreement that protects users rights mentioned in the article. What have you been able to negotiate?
Any information would be welcome we are struggling with this issue too.

Hope you love it, Margaret.
That's three BYU grads in a row in this position!j
Welcome Margaret! It is wonderful to have you working with us!!
Playing games is a good way to reduce stress and at the same time it is a good way to learn something. While playing you do not focus on the actual level of difficulty and your senses and learning skills may open up a new horizon to get the hang of certain new lessons. While learning languages this works out definitely - I know it out of experience.
Super! Thanks for letting us know!
I saw the Studio Photographhy course and it was very good.
If you haven't seen this documentary, you should. Interesting questions posed about the effects of technology on us all.
That's quite the addition. Great news!
Hey thanks for the great step by step post on using the H2. Really clear and easy to understand. I like the part on how to convert the audio straight to mp3 on the recorder itself! Nice.
Thanks, Jonathan. Personally, I think the recording done on the H4 sounds great and would be the clearer of the two on a mobile device. Especially since most patrons will be using MP3s, you might as well use the no-cost option.
That's good, because word on the street is that you are the presenter!
Can't wait for the upcoming events!
Great overview, David! Thanks for the useful info.
Thanks for the useful overview, Jonathan!
The collection keeps growing and growing. Thanks, Mary!
The learning lab is looking great! Thanks for the update, Anto!
The pool is ready to go!
Very useful article. It's nice to know Nielson's research still holds.
Thanks for posting!
