Sharing and Collaborating with Google Drive

One of the most powerful features of Google Apps is the ability for users to share and collaborate on documents, slideshows, spreadsheets, and more.

This transforms what can happen in schools and provides many benefits:
  • Everyone can work on the same document (no multiple versions or different media)
  • You can work with colleagues on projects (grants, lessons plans, newsletters, common assessments)
  • Students can do group work easily in the same document or slideshow
  • Student work can be turned in and graded electronically
  • Users can get and give feedback on documents
  • You can work anywhere, anytime, on any device
  • And of course, it helps save on paper and printing
If you are new to Google Apps, or have staff who are just now moving into Google Drive, or students who are learning about collaboration for the first time, it is critical that you get a solid foundation on how sharing and collaborating works in the Google ecosystem. So many other things you will do with Google Apps will be impacted and improved by collaboration.

A while back a recorded a one-hour webinar covering all of the details of sharing and collaborating with Google Drive. See below for the recorded video, a help guide, and a slideshow.
