Universities are switching over to Google for their e-mail services and other internet-based services. BBC reported that Trinity College just recently moved all of their students, staff, and faculty to the customized google platform. Students will have access to e-mail, documents and other on-line tools from the internet and they will have these e-mail addresses for life. Which means Google is building an empire of young people that will continue to use their service for years to come. Arizona State University, U.S. and Linköpings University, Sweden are other universities that have switched to the Google platform.
Do you think universities need to worry about issues of privacy (the use of private information) when considering moving to this Google-sponsored platform?
