    Monitoring content on Google Apps

    Hello,

    I hope I have posted this in the correct forum.

    Our school is using Google Apps Education Edition and we want to monitor the student accounts for inappropriate content etc.?

    Anyone out there using Google Apps?

    How do you monitor the student accounts?

    Thanks,

    techman

    Which part do you want to monitor? Email? Documents? Sites?

    EMail - postini
    Documents - you can't (unless they are shared)
    Sites- more difficult - my students set them as visible to users of my apps domain so I can see them.

    As far as I know.

    Google Apps

    Just email.

    I have added Postini services but it's not that straight forward to use.

    All I see are Message Filters.

    Pretty good guide here. This is for premier but I assume the education Postini setup is the same.

    Mail archiving is a paid service I believe - even on the education edition so filtering and the logs are more or less all you have.

    This isn't that different to the service we get off our RBC (although I'd argue their filtering controls are better than Postini). I wasn't that impressed by their spam handling - it seems to duplicate what is available in GMail and highlights the fact that Postini was bought in and slapped on to their business services, it isn't quite as good as it should be yet.

    I guess you *could* hack it at internet filter level. It might not be totally pleasant, and it would depend on what you are trying to do.

    What's the game? Looking for obscenity?

    Google Apps Monitoring

    Yes. Looking for vulgar language. Possible cases of bullying?
