Additional Google Apps

Your UT Google account may allow you to access additional apps and tools provided by Google, such as YouTube, Google+, and Blogger. These apps are offered and managed by Google.

Remember that you will only have access to these features while you are active faculty, staff, or student at UTK. OIT recommends only using your UT Google account for school or work.
