An Important Notice
The college’s word processing and calendar applications are all provided by Google. These are regularly upgraded to improve performance and protect your online security.
If you write your assignments using a web browser then you’ll never notice this happening because everything occurs in the background. However, if you are accessing them using a tablet or phone, then you might (and can we stress might) encounter some issues in the near future. This document explains how to resolve them if they arise.
Google provides dedicated apps for tablets and phones to use their word-processing, storage and calendar applications. They have told us that they will no longer be supporting older versions of these applications from the 3rd of April and that people will need to upgrade their existing applications to continue using our word processing and calendar services. This is because the older versions are not secure.
If you regularly update applications on your phone or tablet then you will not have any problems but if you have not updated them for a while then you may be opening yourself up to unnecessary risks that Google is trying to address.
