Ten Minutes of Connecting: Day 19 – Collaborating with Google Docs

Today’s 10 minutes of connecting is a beginner’s look at collaboration with Google Docs.

There are very few places that don’t use Google Drive today to collaborate on notes, projects, presentations, thinking, etc.

Google Drive allows you to create different types of shared files, like spreadsheets and presentations. Google Docs is a starting place for getting used to using cloud storage and sharing documents with others.

We have embedded two instructional videos that begin at the very beginning – creating your own Google Drive.  It’s a bit longer than 10 minutes, but we suggest that you watch them as far as you need to, and then go to your own Google Drive and practice.

For those already using Google Drive, this would be a great time to nurture others in learning to collaborate online using this tool.

If you are a Google expert, what resources would you suggest for those just beginning to use collaborative documents?
