Getting Started with Google Drive and Docs

Print Friendly

Faculty and students at MATC have access to Google Drive through their MATC Gmail accounts.  Google Drive is an online file storage space and a free, powerful, suite of office productivity software. Files uploaded to Google Drive can be shared with students and oftentimes viewed directly within the web browser. Documents created as or converted to Google Docs can be shared and edited by others simultaneously, allowing for flexible collaborative writing and online group work. An added plus is that students are often familiar with this teaching tool. To help you become more familiar with Google Drive and Docs, we have compiled a list of video tutorials and other resources.
