How Can Google Drive Be Useful to Me?

GoogleDrive

  1. Share files with people, such as meeting minutes, class notes, and task lists
  2. Collaborate on conference presentations with colleagues
  3. Edit student papers with in-text comments
  4. Backup files (you can never have too many copies!)
  5. Work from home without the need of Remote Desktop or your Work Computer
  6. And more…..

Use Google Drive to create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online. Although Google Drive has its own applications, you can download the Google files to your desktop and they will open in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Collaborate on projects without the hassle of emailing files and version tracking. Multiple Users can edit the Google files at the same time, without conflict. Revisions are saved automatically and Google Drive has a revision tracking feature so you can see what changes were made, when.

Google Drive can be accessed anytime, from anywhere, via the internet or the Google Drive App
