OIT announces Box and Google Apps

Author: Carol Bradley

Two new collaboration and file-sharing services are now available for faculty, staff and students at Notre Dame. These new tools, made available by the Office of Information Technologies (OIT), will enable you to access your files from anywhere, at any time, using any device.

Box is a secure, cloud-based, content-sharing platform that facilitates collaboration with anyone regardless of location or whether or not they are affiliated with Notre Dame. Syncing files from your computer and accessing them on your mobile devices has never been easier. See the Notre Dame Box page for more details.

Google Apps for Notre Dame offers real-time, group editing of documents and provides a collaborative bridge between faculty, staff and students. Google Docs, Sites, and others are available to faculty and staff, except for Gmail, which will remain for students only. See the Google Apps for Notre Dame page for more details.
