Google Drive Introduction

Google Drive is Google's file storage and sync service formerly labeled Google Docs. Google Drive provides users with 5GB of free storage and the ability to collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more. Watch the video below for more information.

 

How Does It Work?

If you can access the Internet and log into Google, you will be able to access your files from anywhere, from any device. Simply log into the school's Google domain with your school username and password (first time users, please see Ms. Harland).

Now you can upload, share, collaborate, and edit your files regardless of operating system, software, and other pesky annoyances. 

Learn more by watching the video below. It is dyn-o-mite out-of-sight!
