  • Collaborate: When you share a Google Docs file on your Google Drive, you and your collaborators can view and edit the file simultaneously.
  • Share files: You can easily share any file on your Google Drive with anyone else who has a Google account.
  • Your files available from anywhere: Files you put on your Google Drive are accessible to you from any computer that has a web browser and an internet connection.
  • Storage: You now have storage available to you in the cloud on Google Drive.  The main limit is the speed of your internet connection.
  • Large file transfers: Most email systems (such as the College’s) limit the size of attachments, but Google Drive lets you share any sized file.

What’s included as part of Google Workspace for Education?

Google Workspace is Google’s “software as a service” office suite. Documents, spreadsheets, presentations can be created with Google Docs, imported through the web interface, or sent via email.  Documents are automatically saved to Google’s servers and can also be downloaded to your computer in a Microsoft Office format.

Google Workspace serves as a collaborative tool for editing documents in real time. Documents can be shared, opened, and edited by multiple users simultaneously. The revision history included in the service allows users to see the additions made to a document, with each author distinguished by colour.

  • Google Docs: Create and format text documents
  • Google Sheets: Create and format spreadsheets
  • Google Slides: Create and format presentations
  • Google Forms: Create surveys to collect information and analyse data
  • Google Drawings: Create, edit, and share images
