Had an interesting directive on Friday....
We had established an awesome faulty mark book using Google Sheets fixing a huge number of problems we have had previously with people deleting stuff they shouldn't and other things.

One of the DPs was concerned and rang Legal Branch who told her that no information about students should be stored on Google Drive as we can't control access and if there was a breach of security then a third party (Google) can't be investigated.  But they told her that when Google Apps comes to DEC it would be okay then to have student data on Google Drive.

I have taken down the markbooks but am pretty frustrated having spent (in conjunction with a colleague ) about 20 hours on this so far.

Has anyone else come across this? Does anyone else have student data on Google Drive (or for that matter anywhere else on the cloud)? And when Google Apps comes to DEC will the information be stored internally to DEC or still on Google's servers? 

I have multiple copies of stuff in various cloud services (mostly as backups) - some of which contains student information - does this then apply to that as well?

Thought I should share this with this community in case others run into the same stumbling block.

Has anyone had any luck with the proxy settings for Google Drive on the DER wireless?  It doesn't seem to pick up the system proxy settings on my Mac  = no sync at school

As far as I am aware there is no Proxy support for the Sync....home it should work perfectly though!!

Well after initial success with Bukkit server at school in the last week of term it stopped working giving us communication errors. So I am now investigating MinecraftEdu as an alternative - I gather it works inside the DEC environment?

Does anyone have a way of changing the sharing permissions for a bunch of nested folders  - I changed on the top level but it does not replicate through the stack.  Don't really want to go through each one individually......

On reflection I think it has worked it just took a while to replicate through the stack

Hope Google Apps arrives in DEC soon! Just a quick question I am currently using Google Drive for shared collaborative programming for the Maths Faculty at Killara HS. I am also in the process of moving our Markbooks, Registration etc to the cloud. I am just wondering how easy it will be to migrate content to the DEC Google environment if/when it becomes available.

I have set up killarahsmaths@gmail.com as the root user - that way all the content is not attached to a specific person - it is just shared with all the users - staff have created their own gmail account - I guess I can just change the shares to be with their DEC user profile with Google Aps

I have requested that http://www.radixendeavor.org be unblocked and it has been for 7 -12.  However when I try using it at school all it get is to the screen "Connecting to Game Server" - anyone else getting further?  I will try playing at home tonight to see what happens
