All third-party tools used for teaching and learning at McGill are subject to the McGill Cloud Directive. Student data contains private information and all tools need to be verified that companies providing these tools are keeping that data safe and complying with all Quebec laws and McGill regulations. Just because a software may be free to use does not mean that it is authorized for use at McGill.
Below is a table of all currently approved tools that comply with the McGill Cloud Directive.
Software and cloud service requests
If you are teaching at McGill and would like to submit a software or cloud service tool to be evaluated for teaching and learning use, please complete this request form. You will be required to login with your McGill username/password. Note that a typical tool can take a minimum of 4-6 weeks to evaluate. While this process approves the tool for use, it does not guarantee that funding will be available if the tool has a license fee.
Teaching and learning tools are chosen with accessibility criteria in mind, in keeping with the Standard sur l’accessibilité des sites Web (SGQRI 008 2.0) and WCAG 2.0. If you encounter an issue when accessing or using any teaching and learning tools, please report an issue.
