Core and Consumer Apps

Core Apps

Google Apps for Education Core Apps include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and several others listed below. These apps are covered by the contact that Simmons has with Google. This means that Simmons owns this data and it is not indexed by Google. In addition, there are no ads served on these apps and your privacy is protected at a level comparable to when you use other Simmons services. The first time you logged into your Simmons Gmail, you agreed to terms of service that cover your use of the Core Apps.
  • Google Mail (GMail) - Powerful email with 25 gigabytes of storage.
  • Google Calendar - Meeting management that integrates directly with your email.
  • Google Docs - Create and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more.
  • Google Drive - 5 gigabytes of file storage you can access from anywhere.
  • Google Sites - Create websites quickly and easily for classes or departmental projects.
  • Google Groups - Communicate and collaborate with students and colleagues in small groups.
Consumer Apps

In addition to Google Apps for Edu Core Apps such as Gmail, Simmons has enabled Consumer Apps, such as Google+, Blogger, YouTube, Maps, and more for students. At this time, Consumer Apps have not been enabled for faculty and staff. We are conducting an analysis of potential risks posed by faculty/staff use of Consumer Apps (e.g. FERPA, HIPAA) and we will update the community if this policy changes. For more information about Consumer Apps, please continue reading. 

Opting In

No one at Simmons is required to use any of the Consumer Apps and choosing not to use them will in no way affect your use of the Core Apps.

What You Need to Know

Consumer Apps are additional services provided by Google that Simmons has enabled to improve your experience using Google Apps for Edu. The first time you use any of the Consumer Apps, you will be asked to agree to a separate set of terms and conditions that cover those products. Please note that these products are not covered by the same agreement that governs use of the Core Apps and using them with your Simmons account is equivalent to using a personal Google account. The data created while using these apps is not owned by Simmons and is indexed by Google and may be used to serve ads.
