I think it is great to see this FAQ. I have some people in my
department that are interesting in seeing it. I do have one
suggestion. Most of the FAQ questions have a definite "yes" or "no"
answer, but it seems as though there are some where I felt I had to
gather the "yes" or "no" from the tone of the question's response.
One example of this for me is the "Can I use a portion of Google Apps
such as the calendar?" question.
Not a big deal for me, but for some people in my dept. they might
want just a straight yes or no.
Also the question:
Is the avoidance of using online applications a university policy or

property of students, faculty, staff, and the University.

It doesn't seem to actually answer the question of is it a policy or
guideline, it says it is a "result." Again, not a big deal for me,
but the people I support will be looking for a more definitive answer.
Thanks again for posting the FAQ. I was glad to see it up.
