UVA is transitioning away from the use of Google accounts for email, file sharing, and calendaring for students. Beginning December 2021, all new students will be issued Microsoft Office 365 email and calendar accounts. This transition is intended to allow the university community to interact more effectively by bringing all of UVA onto one platform, Office 365. Explore the Office 365 for Students page from UVA ITS for full details of the transition. Current students with UVA Google accounts will keep those accounts, but no new UVA Google accounts will be created.
LDT is here to support A&S instructors in understanding how this transition will affect your teaching activities, and in identifying and applying UVA learning technologies to facilitate these activities. Contact A&S Learning Design & Technology for a discussion of how this transition may affect your teaching and learning activities.
