Google Drive and Google Docs Training Session for Higher Education

1,469

Published on

Introduction to Google Drive and Google Docs for lecturers and students. Google Drive and Google Docs extend the ability of collaboration, sharing and file management beyond the limitations of email (and its perilous version control) and hard drive/network drive (with their difficult off site access). This slideshow is based on a session that was run with colleagues to explain the uses of Google Drive and Google Docs (also how Google Docs differ from normal files). Matt Cornock, University of York.
