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.
