For now, the application period for early graduation during the semester, the final correction period for the course application, and the mid-course lecture evaluation period, the graduation thesis submission period, and the application period for the multi-disciplinary course will be delayed by one or two weeks. The application period for the summer seasonal semester is the same as before. The end of the semester is unchanged, but the end-of-semester lecture evaluation period has been extended by four days, and the end of the first semester’s grade calculation and the checking period will be extended by one day. In addition, the summer semester was postponed for two days on a weekday basis on both the start and the end dates.

[Policy]Graduation and Entrance Ceremonies Are Cancelled, Policies on the Novel Coronavirus

Hanyang University's Infectious Disease Management Committee (Executive vice president, academic affairs as a chairman) announced the decided opinion of the university on the new coronavirus on February 3rd. The ‘2019 Early Graduation Ceremony’ planned from February 19th to 21st and ‘2020 Entrance Ceremony’ planned on February 28th will not be held this year. The Committee decided to cancel all events that many people gather, such as graduation ceremony, entrance ceremony, freshmen orientation, and freshmen welcoming. If any cancellation charge occurs due to the decision, the university supports expenditures. The move comes as the latest stage of warning of an infectious disease crisis has been upgraded from ‘caution’ to ‘alert’. It also noted the response methods that each college should equip hand sanitizer and post a notice at the entrance of the building. For this purpose, each administration team has to designate a person who can perform a primary temperature check, and if his or her student requests a fever check, the person will be instructed to check the symptoms more accurately through Hanyang Student Health Center (02-2220-1466). In addition, the university said it is currently purchasing a contactless thermometer to distribute to colleges. Meanwhile, the dormitory announced that it will use the Seoul Campus guest House as a self-isolation facility for students who returned from China to prevent the outbreak and spread of the infectious disease. Accordingly, reservation applications and use of guest houses will be suspended until the end of March.

[Policy]“Into the Unlimited Storage,” Hanyang University Officially Introduces G suite for Education

Google Logo Hanyang University officially introduces Google’s G suite for Education (‘G suite’ hereafter) from January 7th, 2020. People can use the official service with the shift of Hanyang mail at 6 PM from the 7th of January. The biggest change lies in email. The previous Hanyang mail was provided within the individual mail service, but it has now shifted to Gmail, which is one of the largest webmail service providers. This has meant the shift to ‘cloud mail.’ Hanyang mail users can have unlimited storage, despite the fact that there was a 15GB limitation for normal users in the past. Therefore, people do not need to worry about emptying mailboxes regularly. If a normal user wants to enlarge their storage, one should pay. Not only storage increases but mobile access was also enhanced via an exclusive app, and one can use other Gmail-based functions. As the security was reinforced, one should manage the password other than the previous HY-in system. This is because one needs to follow Google’s password policy. Two-level authentification is available, utilizing texts as such. The Office of Information and Communications Technology Services introduced the move of email data and limited access to the previous system. Other than email, people can use various services through Google G suite. One can also log-in to Google using Hanyang email accounts. G suite is basically a bundle of various applications that Google is servicing on the web, differentiating the normal users by giving additional access. In particular, unlimited storage is the biggest feature. It is provided in a unified way, which means everything that uses the cloud services are combined altogether. For example, if a normal user used 10GB for mail service, the drive is to be used under 5 GB limitation if he or she is using a 15GB plan. The G suite service offered to universities is ostensibly ‘unlimited,’ and there is no significant limitation in the sharing of storage among different services. However, Google’s detailed guidelines state that the combined capacity is up to 5 TB (reference: 1 TB = 1024 GB), so it appears to be almost unlimited for ordinary users. However, the maximum storage limit should be kept in mind. Google’s G suite services allow users to back up or share files and photos in the cloud (Google Drive and Google Photos), create documents through an online office (Docs, Spreadsheets, Slides), and create online questionnaire forms or manage online memory. It supports communication from voice to video chat, and not only personal work but also teamwork collaboration or mobile linkage can be provided through calendars and address books. In addition to personal learning support for students, it is expected to be used in a variety of ways, including administrative and research support. In addition, it is expected to use various functions with the support of the Office of Information and Communications Technology Services. Regarding the introduction of G suite, the Office of Information and Communications Technology Services announced its intention to respond to the continuous security accidents and threats of Hanyang Mail and to support the implementation of the strategy for developing education, research and administration of members through an online collaboration platform, along with reducing the cost of system operation. For additional information regarding the introduction of the Hanyang University G suite, please refer to the official information page at ▲ Introducing G suite: from the web page of the Office of Information and Communications Technology Services Global News Team Translated by: Lee Seong-chae

[Policy]Changes in Adobe's Software Policy on PCs on campus... "Please delete it"

It will be restricted to use Adobe software on campus. The office of ICT (Information and Communications Technology) services, which manages the use of software on campus, announced a change in the policy regarding Adobe software products. As a result, it is no longer possible to download Adobe software from now on. ▲ The Adobe logo According to the guide, Adobe products can be only used by the officially subscribed CC license, whereas the CS versions that were provided for education purposes cannot be used anymore. Additionally, all existing CS versions should be deleted. Due to the soaring costs of maintaining the license, it has become exceedingly difficult to continuously support the entire use of the software on campus. A separate inspection is currently underway to support unavoidable teaching purposes or professional work. To support further software products, it is expected that the university will determine the appropriate method after the examination. Meanwhile, as most Adobe software products have been discontinued, other free versions, such as PDF viewer, have been suggested for use. The commonly used Adobe software products are Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, After Effects, InDesign, and Acrobat. The Global News Team - *Translated by Hyejeong Park

[Policy]Hanyang University’s Online Encyclopedia: 'Hanyang Wiki' is officially open

Hanyang University’s online encyclopedia is finally available online. The Media Strategy Center announced that Hanyang Wiki website has been open since November 1st to commemorate its 80th anniversary. ‘Wiki’ is a platform to create collaborative documents online, widely known as Wikipedia. In fact, Hanyang Wiki has the same platform as Wikipedia, and the basic operations are the same. However, while Wikipedia emphasizes collective intelligence, Hanyang Wiki will be the writer-centered domain for a certain period in order to improve the reliability of data and the initial stable operation. Unlike a typical homepage maintained with everything in place, Hanyang Wiki releases available platforms for the time being, and yet, the number of documents entered during preparation amounts to more than 1900. Basic documents such as university promotional materials, up-to-date manuals, and major announcements have already been uploaded. The Media Strategy Center's plan is to induce continuous content accumulation and pursue symbolism and practicality based on this platform. ▲Hanyang Wiki can be accessed from the top menu of the university representative website. The site can be accessed by clicking on 'Hanyang Wiki' from the top menu of the university representative website or by entering the address ( The general public does not have permission to write, so you can submit and post materials through a separate input request form. There are three main reasons for introducing Hanyang Wiki from the Media Strategy Center. First, it is to widely inform university-related information and services. In fact, the current platform is much more improved than the previous one since there was a limit to retrieve or accumulate data. Second, there has been the need to be strategic in the Web 3.0 era. Along with the upcoming AI-based services and activities, it was analyzed that it is required to collect and operate abundant content on a single platform. Third, it serves as a college brand and promotional expansion window. Its need for ‘fact-based’ promotion and efficient use of vast amount of materials arose. That is, as one of the Korean proverbs goes, ‘Beads only become treasure when they are strung together.’ The media strategy center encouraged the participation of internal members by distributing guides containing '10 reasons why Wiki is good ' and '10 examples of use' through internal letters. He also introduced the development plan for 2039, on the 100th anniversary of the university. As Hanyang Wiki has begun in earnest, it is planned to implement detailed operational plans, such as data collection campaign activities and writing staff recruitment. Kwon Kyung-bok, the head of the Media Strategy Center, said, “With the opening of the website, the era of service and promotion with only fragmented data has passed.” He also added, "However, as much time and effort are spent in the process of settling, the members' attention and participation are needed, and through this, I hope that the 'unique culture of Hanyang' will be established. ▲ There is a large banner hanging on the outer wall of the Hanyang Plaza building to announce the official opening of Hanyang Wiki.
