Ryerson is evaluating its E-mail, calendaring, and collaboration systems. We are seriously considering using a system like Google’s Apps for Education or Microsoft’s Office 365 for Education. We are also considering other options such as Ryerson hosting its own systems or contracting with a Canadian provider.
Update 2011/11/22: Please note the survey is closed. You may be interested in other blog posts including:
- Draft Proposal to Adopt Google Apps for Education
- Is Ryerson Ready to Go Google?
- Symposium Presentations and Other Resouces
- Email and Collaboration Tools Consultation
We want to hear what you think. What features are important to have in Ryerson’s E-mail system? Should Ryerson offer instant messaging, Web-based audio chat and video conferencing, document sharing, and collaborative authoring of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations? How important are those features?
Please take the time to fill out an online survey. The survey requires that you log in using your my.ryerson.ca user name and password so that everyone can only fill out the survey once and so we can group responses by faculty, staff, and students. Although you must log in, your Ryerson ID will be removed from the survey database after the survey closes so that your response will be anonymous.
Please complete the survey.
