Google Drive Masterclass

Google Drive is the cornerstone of sharing, creating and organising files in the Google environment. In this session we get practical by sharing folders and documents with you. We unpack what it means to collaborate and help you to master your Google Drive structure. We will show you how to colour code your folders, share and unshare and get a good grasp of what cloud storage means with Google Drive. We also explore advanced features of sharing and some need to know settings that you can utilise. If you want to master Google Drive, this session is for you!

Top Tip

Due to the nature of our sessions, we recommend that you join the session with two screens or from two devices. That way, you can see your trainer as well as work in your Drive at the same time. Alternatively, you could always split your screen. Watch this video by our EduOn department to learn how to do just that if this is how you will be joining.
