Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service developed by Google. Drive allows users to store files in the cloud, synchronize files across devices, and share files. As part of Google Workspace, Drive is the container for the Google productivity apps Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, Draw, and Sites.

Google Docs is the text editing and processing component of Google’s online office tools in Google Workspace. The free online app allows users to write varying types of reports, collaborate on projects in real time, keep notes, and more. More than a text editor, different settings, tools, and add-ons within Google Docs allow users to create interactive documents, share and collaborate with others, complete research from within, voice type, translate, and create drawings within Docs.

This session covers the basics of Drive including creating, searching and finding files, uploading files, organizing tips and tricks, and Drive settings. Participants are also walked through editing a Google Doc, sharing, using Explore and other tools like hands-free typing within Docs. Add-ons and special formatting features can be covered as well. 


All participants must have basic computer skills and know their logon information for a public Google ( or Google Workspace for Education ( account. Additional requirements may apply.
