The request was initiated by Adelle Lotter (11 Oct 2016)
After almost 2 years of the ‘bring your own email’ strategy for students, the Google as well as Microsoft domains exist. This gives more opportunities. Also. some practical issues become apparent. A few of these:
- Sudents do not specify their email addresses – we populate the email address with the NWU gmail address. Students do not use this address and they do not receive accounts.
- Turnitin use student email addresses as unique id’s. If students change their email after they have used Tii for the first time they are invalid students in Tii
- The Phasing out of P:drives results in students using Google drives.
- Integrations between Sakai and Google exist that opens up new T&L possibilities.
We would like to investigate the possibility of issuing students with a fixed email address (Google or Microsoft).
