In this workshop, you will learn useful features of uploading files to Google Drive, where files are stored in “the cloud.” Google Drive allows you to upload and store files in their original format, or convert them to Google Docs format, to edit. Learn how to share files and folders with others at Ramapo, or keep them private. You can also download and convert files into multiple formats.

Pedagogy Connection: Google Drive enables instructors to create empowering activities that encourage students to be in control of their learning. Students are able to work more efficiently with Google Drive without fear of losing their materials. This is also an excellent tool for collaboration and peer review.

Open to everyone.
