Which Service Should I Use?

Use Google@SEAS with other SEAS users who have opted to use Google Apps with their SEAS accounts. Note that while you can use a Google@SEAS account to collaborate with non-SEAS (personal) Google accounts, protections for University data are not applicable when shared outside the organization. Keep this in mind when collaborating on University data, such as research results or student information.

Use SecureShare to securely send a single document to one or more colleagues who have PennKeys.

Use Penn+Box to collaboratively share files (similar to Dropbox) with colleagues who have a PennKey or external credentials. See the Answers article on Penn+Box for more information.
