Can I use Google Calendar

Scomis do not recommend schools use Google Calendar because the data is held outside the UK and is not protected by the UK Data Protection Laws.

Scomis recommend using Live@edu which includes a calendar. If you would like more information, please contact the Scomis Service Desk.

What is Live@edu?
Live@edu is a no-cost e-mail and collaboration service, co-branded for schools.  The Outlook Live e-mail service provides the familiar and reliable Outlook Web Access (OWA) co-branded with your school’s name and logo for students.  It also includes access to other services that increase your school’s ability to collaborate and communicate, including shared calendars and address books.

With 10GB of e-mail storage per user, students are freed from the normal space constraints of many email systems.  Live@edu is accessible through popular Web browsers for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems as well as many mobile devices – and it’s not only free, it’s easy to set up and administer
